A Tribute To Presidents Day - Poem by Llewelyn Ellsworth Dahlen

Some will be remembered
Others will fade with the past
But all gave their something
To make this country last

A nation blessed by our maker
And tempered by constant storm
They were all called to lead
To face challenges not the norm

May the sunset of today
Leave hope for the early morn
For they must shoulder the burdens
Of a world that's tattered and torn....

    Maybe we are related. It's not a common name. My husband's father was Swedish. I like your poem...an unusual subject. BVDS1@verizon.net (Report) Reply
