Memorial Day 2020

THE MUFFLED drum's sad roll has beat

The soldier's last tattoo;

No more on Life's parade shall meet

That brave and fallen few.

On Fame's eternal camping-ground

Their silent tents are spread,

And Glory guards, with solemn round,

The bivouac of the dead.

~ Bivouac Of The Dead, by Theodore O'Hara
