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.

Senryu 1

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

For Black-eyed Susan's
1 Senryu any subject contest.

heaven- memorial day

Home to brave souls, Entering a world of their own. Admiration shown to those who served with pride. Vets who died fighting for what they believed was right. Excited to have given freedom to our land. Nationally we gather to celebrate the lives lost and lives still here. Thank you to all our vets

Onward and Upward

"Onward and upward"

the good men and women were heard to say

as they drew their swords to join the fray

The enemy was vanquished and did quickly give way

And peace was preserved in a grandiose display

Now for those that gave all we kneel and pray

So they will be forever remembered on this Memorial Day

Short Memorial Day poem by Sara Kendrick| Details |

Memorial Day

As the sun rises orange
Casting purple 'pon the clouds.
This is a day to remember
Our soldiers and be proud.

Many have gone before.
So that we can have life.
Look at their graves, too young
To even have a wife.

As the Dove coos, "Mournful."
The cock crows, "Wake up, day!"
Take just a few minutes 
And be thankful before play.

What Would You Have Me Do -- A Memorial Day Tribute

Oh gallant sons of glory, Whose years were so precious few -- In payment for the debt I owe, What would you have me do? If only I could hear, What question would you ask? To pay this debt of honor, Just what would be my task? Could your immortal spirits Meet me face to face, What would you have me do To calm your resting place? Could I breach the chasm of death And ask you to answer true, In payment for the lives you gave, What would you have me do?
