Viernam War Elegy.cover framedThis poem was born on a hilltop over forty-five years ago in Vietnam. It concerns the experiences both of its author and the Vietnamese people. Its many fragments came together into final form twenty-five years later. The length of time it took to develop this elegy is a testament to the enduring impact of the Vietnam conflict on our national psyche and the men and women who served there. This is not a pro-war poem. Rather, it is an attempt to look honestly at the impact of that war on those who served on both sides of the conflict.
