White Crosses

Gravestones, white crosses
bone-chill breaths of old ghosts, stirs-
Dried, blood-red poppies.

Shadows only remain
Where life stood its ground
Far above their air
Its devastation burned down

This is the one day they say
We must remember this day
All the fighters who have died
As well as those who have tried
Defending us to this day

With the intent not to bend but restore us.

tanka revolution

Working class people 
Do not trust socialist intellectuals
Don´t get lured by them 
They are upper middle class people 
Who want to run your revolution.

Short Memorial Day poem by Anna-Marie Docherty| Details | |

Best foot forward

Front-line in depth of mortar
Whistling shells and screams of torture
Blood clott gurgles death bell tolls
Hell of pain in body enthralls
Danger rings apprehension stalls

Short Memorial Day poem by Willie A. Buchanan| Details | |


Out of the bank I ran.
Money and gun in hand.
Bumped into a marching band.
Kids let out a scream.
A flash back from my dream.
Frown on my face,
as cops gave chase.
They screwed up my plan.
In the alley I made the last stand.

The unattainable
Of Solitude
With the Will
   Of God'
And drifts away
   To sand...

Short Memorial Day poem by Connie Gildersleeve| Details | |

Memorial Day

soldiers gave their lives-
enormous price for freedom
Gray clouds in morning

*An unofficial beginning of summer with a long weekend of BBQ's, beer and having fun, but 
we all should take a few moments and remember the real meaning of Memorial Day.

Short Memorial Day poem by randy johnson| Details | |

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day.
We're paying tribute to those who died for the USA.
Many soldiers died so that we can be free.
It means a lot to you and it means a lot to me.
Some fought with guns, others fought with tanks.
They gave everything for us and I give my thanks.

Short Memorial Day poem by Rodgers Roger Carter| Details | |

Old son, Young Dad

He died forty
with strength and wit
He left a son Young and young

He died nighty 
With bones no teeth
He left a boy pale and forty

They meet in paradise
Dad still forty
Son at nighty
Dad thought it was grand pa
Son thought he was grand son
Who had died also

Memorial Day

                                                       memorial day --
                                              soldiers stand at attention
                                                    a bugle plays Taps

Short Memorial Day poem by Robert Heemstra| Details | |

The World of War

the Yankees and Rebels did fight
sometimes for hours through day and night

the Civil War is in the past
but the hatred will always last

ignorance in all the wars
nothing will even the scores

lives are always lost
loved ones pay the cost

peace may never come
when leaders are dumb

Short Memorial Day poem by Leo Larry Amadore| Details | |

The You in Me

The you in me that I know

goes with me where I go --

the you that isn't you at all

comes to me when I recall

the days we spent as we grew.

I never guessed, I never knew,

all that I'd have left of you

would be my thoughts of those two:

of the you in me, the me in you.

Short Memorial Day poem by Ifeanyi Bob Ekechukwu| Details | |

The Night Owl

Hoot! Hoot! Came the call
In silence I listened,heard
Suddenly, hoot! Hoot! 
Came the cry,tree 
Branches rustling,wings 
Seems the world was in 
Oblivion-the absolute 
Went I to the window 
and Looked into the 
empty Darkness. As I lay 
down,I Knew somewhere 
I would Hear that sound

Short Memorial Day poem by Harshitha Gn| Details | |

Who is he

He do come everyday in my dream,
Even while eating ice cream.
He always says about figures.
But I get triggerd !!
He has a angel's charm but causes a evil harm.
I see him everyday but is neither my crush or my lover.
He comes everytime during my class 
Or sometimes during my exam!

Guessing who it might be?
He is my maths lecturer!

Short Memorial Day poem by verlena dillard| Details | |

A Day in the Sky

The cool air,
blowing in my hair,
the sound of bells ringing loud,
sitting down on the soft clouds.
This down right pleasure,
is what I'll treasure,
that no other dream can measure.
These yellow an red skies,
reveals its moment of time,
sleeping in the mid air as much as I please,
the view of the day in the sky,
as clear as the seven seas.
