Mullberry Whine

poured out before bed

Anatomy of Never Approaching Enough

…Memorial Day 1920, the Suresnes American Cemetery (Library of Congress)…

A head full of ideals, yoked by obligation reigns
Over a heart of decency

A gut full of duty and some small roguishness driving
Foward limbs with purpose of brotherhood, home and self, slivered glory seek

A manner full of resourcefulness recalling
A life of promise now

A circle quieter with the fall
A time emptier with such loss
A world fuller by their sacrifice
A day of remembrance never approaching enough.


A breathless, bountiful Memorial Day to all.  

Keep it clean, keep it respectful, or keep away.
