Time Honored Tradition

Memorial Day is the traditional day to honor American heroes who have perished serving the United States. It is also a day to celebrate with family and friends the bonds that keep America strong. 


Day opens to the sounds of soft chirping
breaking the silence of the night that 
turns gray in the morning shadows.
As light tries to break through,
sounds of freedom ring
across the land.
Voices sing
loud and
clear.
We remember!


Live your life with conviction as those who have come before us.
Memorial Day is the day to celebrate what America offers.

Happy Memorial Day

Enjoy the Memorial Day Holiday. Do you have a Memorial Day tradition? I started a new one two years ago, writing a poem for each Memorial Day. Last year's poem can be accessed here and my 2014 poem here.

Thank you for joining my Poetry Parade 
as I salute American heroes today.
