The Solomon Islands Campaign






The natives have taken to hiding in the dark

under the spreading palms

to watch us as we march through their muck

we can see their eyes shinning there

like little white candle flames

nothing seems to startle them

even the sound of gun fire in the distance.

They are as silent as dead trees

or unhatched eggs in a nest.
