This artwork was created 2014.
It composition represents the Nursing Sisters during WWI.
She walked by rows of bandaged wounds
And minds so shattered by battering recalls,
Her step acute to each soldier’s breath
Her tears restrained with each soldier that falls
From a land of maples to embattled shores
To front lines of roll-call losses
From stretchers and beds and surgical tents,
To fields of mourning and implanted crosses
Her ear served as comfort to dying whispers,
Her heart so stoic to serve the Corps,
Her hand penned last words of fading dictation,
Her eyes bared witness to the travesties of war
She was a Nursing Sister, a woman of rank
Volunteered by a call, that all Canada heard
In uniform celeste with apron white
This Angel of Mercy, was nicknamed the Blue Bird
(from book of poetry “Remembering Our Fallen”)
