Memorial Day 2007

“Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave.
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.”

.....Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Dirge Without Music”

A poem for Memorial Day, 2007: caskets quietly come home
