A bugler plays "Taps" during the fun...

Don’t you just love countdowns? Well, when it’s a countdown to something good of course…

I’m counting down to Memorial Day by sharing my Top 5 memorable poems. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. If you can, stop by the cemetery this Monday and lay a bouquet of flowers on a grave, any grave. You’ll be glad you did.

Here is poem #3 by Major General Daniel Butterfield:


Day is done…
Gone the sun
From the lake…
From the hills…
From the sky.
All is well…
Safely rest
God is nigh.
Fading light….
Dims the sight
And a star….
Gems the sky….
Gleaming bright
From afar….
Drawing nigh
Falls the night.
