Arlington – In Memory of our Fallen



“Americans they come.

We’re drawn here

One by one.

To walk the past,

Revealed in paths

Its quietness resides.



On hallowed ground

We stand surround

By soldiers side by side.

The tunes of Taps

Forever last,

The bugle’s notes do cry.



There’s valor here

And honor too;

The tomb of the Unknown.

A mother’s son or daughter,

Our nation’s fallen one.

Each lie in rest,

They are the best.

Their fighting now is done.



On sacred ground,

American flags do fly.

The carriage wheel,

The swords of steel,

Horses passing by.

To tunes of Taps

In sorrow past,

The Bugler’s note do cry.”

  1. This is so beautiful Denise, what a wonderful tribute. You have a typo that I believe you would want to know of…you typed “On scared ground,” rather than “On sacred ground”.
    I thank them for the ultimate sacrifice so that we may be free!! May they Rest in Peace.


    1. Thank you Ziona! I am SO SORRY for the late reply! I missed your comment back in June and am just now seeing it! Bless you, your comment is an encouragement to my “poet’s heart” (I love your line!!) Thank you, Denise
