Memorial Day For The War Dead

Rating: 3.0
Memorial day for the war dead. Add now
the grief of all your losses to their grief,
even of a woman that has left you. Mix
sorrow with sorrow, like time-saving history,
which stacks holiday and sacrifice and mourning
on one day for easy, convenient memory.

Oh, sweet world soaked, like bread,
in sweet milk for the terrible toothless God.
"Behind all this some great happiness is hiding."
No use to weep inside and to scream outside.

Dear, Mr Amichai I am working on a project in English where I find soldiers poems, stories, or journal entries and analyse them. after reading your poem i wanted to comment about it. i really love where you are coming from in this poem. a lot of people take memorial day for granted and they should not because soldiers have given us everything we have today and i would just like to say thank you and i will be remembering all those that have fallen this memorial day. I wish u the best.
