Walking The Stones A Memorial Day Tribute By Stephen Craig Rowe

WALKING THE STONES

Spring sweet blooms

Blossoms

buds and

twittering

Birdsong

Sun warmed face.

Breaking my stride

To a slow march

as

Row and row of

White Stones

Row after row of

White Stones

Stark upon

Dark green

Late

Afternoon lawn.

Alone

I walked the Stones

Reading inscriptions

Name, Rank,

Branch of Service,

Date of

Birth

and

With reverance

softly touched

some

Stones with

Hand and

In the center of the

Cemetary stands a

Stark white Stones

Cast

Late afternoon

Shadows

As

I

Unseen

Formaly marched around

the statue.

At each compass point

North, South, East and West

Stopped and faced the Stones.

Came to Attention

And saluted

The Silence

In Honor and

Respect

Then went

Walking the stones.

 

As ever be well.  With love,  Stephen Craig Rowe
