In The Veteran's Death

Poem by Rozi Theohari

The flag finishes fluttering
The monuments--echoing
The ocean refrains from waving
The wind ceases blowing
Birds stop migrating
Flowers stop blooming
People quit moving
The nation retreats from honoring
The invalid's wound begins cauterizing
The friend's tear lies freezing
The candles dim shinning
Children no longer smiling
