Call to Arms
Eternal soldier, arise,
Hearken to the battle cries.
Years ago, dead and gone,
seems rest has not been long.
Come now and stand, hear the cry,
�Today again, your
brothers may die...'
I answer, "I come, brothers
Returning through the mists,
from an endless
journey in time
Part of me, timeless, still exists,
this ever faithful soul of mine..."

Faye Sizemore makes her home in the beautiful foothills of South Carolina with Grant, the love of her life, as well as three dogs, two cats, two parakeets and four nanny goats. Grant is a Vietnam Veteran having served with the US Marines in 1968-69 and is, of course, Faye's muse. Faye is deeply interested in Veterans' Affairs and Veterans' Causes. She is very proud of Grant and her poetry is an off-shoot of that pride.
