Veterans Day


Veterans Day

by Beto Ochoa

 

 

For every hero on the stage

On parade or in the grave

With medals pinned and glory flags unfurled

 

 

The humble serviceman by scores

Packs the caissons, Guards the doors

Sails sea and sky across the troubled world

 

 

Comrades in arms they share the call

Who stepped across that line for all

Knowing well that fate might call their name

 

 

They crossed that sword mark in the dust

For freedoms sake and God they trust

And did it not for fortunes gold or fame

 

 

So on Remembrance Day give thanks

To veterans past and current ranks

And Praise Eternal God that they were there

 

 

Oh quiet heroes, every one

Without your hand, naught would be won

Pray our acclaim, the purest badge you wear

Glad you liked that.
MOR’s poem blew me away.
Especially
“The silent stones forevermore
Will keep her love who went to war.”
The mental imagery….heartbreaking

beto: thanks for the kind words. This was one hell of a poem in your own right. I particularly liked the form and cadence of it all. Very well done!
