Memorial Day Poems

Poem 1

A lost guardian angel, sitting on the edge of everything

I push my shopping cart along the cracks of destiny

My house sits on the corner of every mission street

And My tin coffee cup feeds on caring heartbeats

Also, My possession is the icon of war, six missing buttons

Navy and white my grandfather’s 70-yr-old military tunic.

My Jacket- My blanket

The Jacket from which I am inseparable

My Jacket – represents the mobility of life

This Jacket is my home.

Poem 2

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?

Poem 3

There are many flags in many lands,

There are flags of every hue;

But there is no flag, however grand,

Like our own Red, White, and Blue.

Poem 4

Look up, there’s our flag!

We can count every star,–

And the red, blue, and white,

How lovely they are!

Floating high, floating wide,–

We can see it from far,

Our flag, it’s the flag,

We can count every star!

In the sun, in the wind,

Do its bright colors shine?

O look at the flag,

It is yours, it is mine!
