Today is Memorial Day, a day for us to remember those who gave their lives in war, a day to feel grateful, a day to honor, a day to cherish. You can find three sad-beautiful poems for Memorial Day at Kate Coombs' blog, Book Aunt: "Medals", "November 5, 1917", and "Before the War". At Charles Ghinga's Father Goose blog, you can read a haunting poem titled "Baseball Dreams". I read these four poems on Friday and found myself thinking about them on and off throughout our family's weekend camping trip.
I offer these two poems today, in honor and memory of those who lost their lives in service of our country.
Today at The Writer's Almanac, you can read a poem titled "Memorial Day" by Dennis Caraher.
