Memorial Day

Rating: 2.9
"Dulce et decorum est"

The bugle echoes shrill and sweet,
But not of war it sings to-day.
The road is rhythmic with the feet
Of men-at-arms who come to pray.

The roses blossom white and red
On tombs where weary soldiers lie;
Flags wave above the honored dead
And martial music cleaves the sky.

God it would be so beatiful if not read by a computer that completely doesn't get the rhythm right. Really, whats the point in having it unless to serve ads?

A marvelous piece; there's nothing glamorous about war, yet soldiers give their most precious asset for God, Country and Duty - a debt that can never be repaid by us; therefore, we must honor them, remember their sacrifices and live as free men. -Joe Breunig Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory
