See the distant flash

Rolling through our once green ash

Feel the setting sun

So important not to forget... Good job!

I'm thinking "ash" is what the bomb LEFT, not what was there before ("once-green"). An alternative line 2 would be "Finding green and leaving ash." A drawback is that the powerful image of 'rolling' is lost... Just a thought.
