Memorial Day Poem for Veterans: The Land
>>> by Maxwell Struthers Burt
Be not afraid, O Dead, be not afraid:
We have not lost the dreams that once were flung
Like pennons to the world: we yet are stung
With all the starry prophecies that made
You, in the gray dawn watchful, half afraid
Of vision. Never a night that all men sleep unstirred:
Never a sunset but the west is blurred
With banners marching and a sign displayed.
Be not afraid, O Dead, lest we forget
A single hour your living glorified;
Come but a drum-beat, and the sleepers fret
To walk again the places where you died:
Broad is the land, our loves are broadly spread,
But now, even more widely scattered lie our dead.
Memorial Day 2018 Poem: A Mother’s Tears
>>> By Amy Peterson
There’s more to the story, than what just appears.
A war written story, from blood and from tears
My son went to war, a very proud man.
He fought in Iraq, on the hot desert sands.
He witnessed his buddies, his comrades, his men,
bleeding and dying, he witnessed their end.
Where is Pvt. Tommy? He’s blown up all around,
his comrades spent hours, picking him from the ground.
Sleeping in holes, dug in the sand,
dreaming of home, but it’s become foreign land.
He can’t tell his enemy, from family or foe,
as he watches his friends sent out, with tags on their toe.
He knows his Mama, is sleepless like him,
and he tries to send word, whenever he can.
He tries not to worry, his family at home,
the horror that he faces, he faces alone.
His mission is over, he’s sent back to me,
he fought for our freedom, but he’ll never be free.
He yearns for his buddies that died over there.
He’s caught with the living, in a doubled looped snare.
He screams in the night, for the battle still roars,
as he lies in his bed, he re-lives all the horror.
Nobody heard the fight, he still fights,
except for his Mama, who comforts him every night.
He never will be, the son I once knew,
the war killed that part, for freedom, for you.
Great Nation, Great Leaders, and all those who will hear,
Freedom began on a mother’s first tear.
Happy Memorial Day Poems: Soldier, Rest
>>> By Sir Walter Scott
Soldier, rest! thy warfare o’er,
Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking;
Dream of battled fields no more,
Days of danger, nights of waking.
In our isle’s enchanted hall,
Hands unseen thy couch are strewing,
Fairy strains of music fall,
Every sense in slumber dewing.
Soldier, rest! thy warfare o’er,
Dream of fighting fields no more:
Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
Morn of toil, nor night of waking.
No rude sounds shall reach thine ear,
Armor’s clang, or war-steed champing,
Trump nor pibroch summon here
Mustering clan, or squadron tramping.
Yet the lark’s shrill fife may come
At the daybreak from the fallow,
And the bittern sound his drum,
Booming from the sedgy shallow.
Ruder sounds shall none be near;
Guards nor warders challenge here;
Here’s no war-steed’s neigh and champing,
Shouting clans, or squadrons stamping.

Memorial Day Poems Prayers The Fallen
>> by Duncan Campbell Scott
Those we have loved the dearest,
The bravest and the best,
Are summoned from the battle
To their eternal rest;
There they endure the silence,
Here we endure the pain—
He that bestows the Valor
Valor resumes again.
O, Master of all Being,
Donor of Day and Night,
Of Passion and of Beauty,
Of Sorrow and Delight,
Thou gav’st them the full treasure
Of that heroic blend—
The Pride, the Faith, the Courage,
That holdeth to the end.
Thou gavest us the Knowledge
Wherein their memories stir—
Master of Life, we thank Thee
That they were what they were.
Memorial Day Poems Quotes: After Battle
>>> by Duncan Campbell Scott
When the first larks began to soar,
They left him wounded there;
Pity unlatched the sun-lit door,
And smoothed his clotted hair.
But when the larks were still, before
The mist began to rise,
‘Twas Love that latched the star-lit door,
And closed his dreamless eyes.
