This is my first attempt at poetry, so be nice. I've done this as a warm-up for a Lu Ten fanfic. I may add some verses during my prose compostion, but for now, consider it oneshot. Standby... Don't forget that I don't own the ATLA portion, DUH! :P
Lost in the wind, petals like rain
Pale shapes twirl gracefully
With breath of the sun.
Little soldier boy, stand proud and strong.
Brave soldier boy, stands proud and strong.
Rays of the sun, first light of day
Shine on the warrior's blade
Flashing silver flame.
Little soldier boy, take up the sword.
Brave soldier boy, takes up the sword.
Smoke over flame, seeks lofty sky
Tendrils drift lazily
Shadows in the night.
Little soldier boy, heed battle's call.
Brave soldier boy, heeds battle's call.
Mist of the night, glistening tears
Shimmer with verdant life
Upon trailing vine.
Little soldier boy, defend the land.
Brave soldier boy, defends the land.
Leaves from the vine, falling so slow
Like fragile, tiny shells
Drifting in the foam.
Little soldier boy, come marching home.
Brave soldier boy, comes marching home.
