A Fallen-Soldiers Sonnet - Poem by Walterrean Salley
</>Fallen warriors, gone too soon:
The best, the brave—bold and bright.
Like a comet thrust from the skies
On a late-summertime night.
Men who'd taken up the cause—
Giving no less than their all.
Thirty-one brilliant, eager minds
For whom we silently pause.
In behalf of the motherland,
They've paid the ultimate price.
We acknowledge now their families
In memories of their sacrifice.
And of their story, time will tell.
For they shall be remembered well.
