Memorial Day

The Day of Memories!

—Remembering what?

The cannon’s roar, the hissing of the shot?

The weary hospital, the prison pen?

The widow’s tears, the groans of stalwart men?

The bitterness of fratricidal strife?

The pangs of death, the sharper pangs of life?

Nay, let us quite forget the whole of these

Upon our sacred Day of Memories.

The Day of Memories!

—Remembering what?

The honored dust in every hallowed spot;

The honored names of all our heroes dead;

The glorious land for which they fought and bled;

Our nation’s hopes; the kindly, common good;

The universal bond of brotherhood;

These we remember gladly, all of these,

Upon our sacred Day of Memories.
