They Wave Farewell

(Memorial Day, USA)

x

Red

(with white and blue)

Waving over fields

Dropping morning dew

x

For us

It is remembering

A waving day of it

Poppy remembering

x

Nature teaches

And must be

A burying place for war

The fields wave

The children wave

We wave

They wave farewell

x

Nature weeps

With dew, with rain, with

Anything that falls

All of us may fall

And weep

We may weep

For the children

(all are children)

Of the world
