This Day in May

Lonely boot and gun

Wait for the sun

To set this day in May.

Black & White young men’s

Names are spoken;

Remember this day in May.

Footage, long old,

Shows us the bold;

Played again this day in May.

Yankee blue hat sits

Under glass lid;

Just cleaned this day in May.

Southern grey hat too

Rests beside blue;

At peace this day in May.

Pangs of birth, life,

National death

Remember this day in May.

Spurts of fresh clean air

Mingle dispair

And love this day in May.

For those who saw their

Comrade’s prayer

Now bow this day in May.

Of long wars must hear

The young soft ears

Afresh this day in May.

I thank the brave,

My kin, who gave

Their lives this day in May.

America won’t

God forbid, don’t

Forget this Memorial Day.
