The Linnet's Wings The Sorrow - Page 89

The Linnet´s Wings Memorial Day Among these weathered markers, rows On rows on rows on endless lawn, My steps disturb a murder of crows Who bustle awkwardly and are gone. The echoes of parading drums Still advertise this warrior trade To millions more whose martyrdoms Will follow in their own parade. The dead get their memorial day, The color guards and rear guards pass, While silent stones still stretch away Across the green and level grass.
