  1. D-DAY, JUNE 6TH, 1944

    The landing craft doors open up to death—
    Atlantic waters slosh up to their combat boots,
    Then the ammo belts around their waists,
    Then their faces are awash with fear,
    Blood spurting from their bodies on a June day.
    The Second Front now a memory
    In the dying on the beaches of Normandy.
