Brave Soldier Boy.

Hi everyone. I have a very special post for you today and would like your utmost attention. I’ve attached a poem for your listening/viewing (click on pic) and the words for you to follow. Believe it or not, it’s actually from a cartoon (Avatar) that I came across by chance. Having said that and at the risk of sounding completely foolish … it actually really moves me … and sometimes even to tears.

Anyway, just thought I’d share it with you all. I’d love to hear what it means to you.

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

I've never seen Avatar, is it anime? Cool poem.

Yup, it's anime ... or at least a North American take on it anyway.
