Memorial Day--Lest we forget

Unlearned Lesson

Memorial Day
Of every year
The little valiant
Flags appear
On every fallen
Soldier's grave--
Symbol of what
Each died to save.
And we who see
And still have breath--
Are we no wiser
For their death?

  1. Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day!

    Teenagers are not that bad. I have a house full right now and I don't want to pull all my hair out! lol

    Actually, B. has a good group of friends that she has known for years. I don't worry that they will do anything bad, just stupid teenage stuff.
