Short Memory


The U.S. Memorial Day,
Meant to remember those who died,
Fighting for our freedom's way,
In resting places found worldwide.
Serving the nation fallen fell,
Through centuries of human war,
Deserving heaven from Earth's hell.
Fallen could not have given more.
In memory, We living give
The last Monday each month of May.
Do good, do bad, but We do live.
The dead do not do holiday.

Marked and unmarked, the fallen lie.
For freedom's call, each one did die.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
