  2. 2. A Memorial Day Poem By C. W. Johnson We walked among the crosses Where our fallen soldiers lay. And listened to the bugle As TAPS began to play The Chaplain led a prayer We stood with heads bowed low And I thought of fallen comrades I had known so long ago They came from every city Across this fertile land. That we might live in freedom They lie here ‘neath the sand. I felt a little guilty My sacrifice was small. I only lost a little time But these men lost their all. Now Services are over For this Memorial Day To the names upon these crosses I just wanted to say, Thanks for what you’ve given No one could ask for more May you rest with God in heaven From now and evermore

  4. 4. The Dying Veteran By Walt Whitman Amid these days of order, ease, prosperity, Amid the current songs of beauty, peace, decorum, I cast a reminiscence—(likely 't will offend you, I heard it in my boyhood)—More than a generation since, A queer old savage man, a fighter under Washington himself (Large, brave, cleanly, hot-blooded, no talker, rather spiritualistic, Had fought in the ranks—fought well—had been all through the Revolutionary war), Lay dying—sons, daughters, church-deacons, lovingly tending him, Sharping their sense, their ears, towards his murmuring, half-caught words: "Let me return again to my war-days, To the sights and scenes—to forming the line of battle, To the scouts ahead reconnoitering, To the cannons, the grim artillery, To the galloping aids, carrying orders, To the wounded, the fallen, the heat, the suspense, The perfume strong, the smoke, the deafening noise; Away with your life of peace!—your joys of peace! Give me my old wild battle-life again!"

  6. 6. Adieu to a Soldier By Walt Whitman Adieu O soldier, You of the rude campaigning (which we shared), The rapid march, the life of the camp, The hot contention of opposing fronts, the long manoeuvre, Red battles with their slaughter, the stimulus, the strong terrific game, Spell of all brave and manly hearts, the trains of time through you and like of you all fill'd, With war and war's expression. Adieu dear comrade, Your mission is fulfill'd—but I, more warlike, Myself and this contentious soul of mine, Still on our own campaigning bound, Through untried roads with ambushes opponents lined, Through many a sharp defeat and many a crisis, often baffled, Here marching, ever marching on, a war fight out—aye here, To fiercer, weightier battles give expression.

  8. 8. O Captain! My Captain! By Walt Whitman O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done, The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won, The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring; But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells; Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills, For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding, For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning; Here Captain! dear father! This arm beneath your head! It is some dream that on the deck, You've fallen cold and dead. My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still, My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will, The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done, From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won; Exult O shores, and ring O bells! But I with mournful tread, Walk the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.

  10. 10. Old Glory By Joanna Fuchs I am the most famous icon on earth, on display all over the world... standing guard at majestic official buildings, in courtrooms, churches, and even on the moon. I fly from the houses of families who revere America, and snap in the breeze on parade. I stand for freedom, honor, justice, service, prosperity and power. My stars and stripes—my red, white and blue, evoke respect and admiration from the good, apprehension and fear from the evil. Sometimes soiled and tattered, even bloodstained, I survived the grinding toil of wars, urging my weary warriors to fight on. I lie precisely folded, held by mothers of fallen soldiers as their fingertips caress me for comfort and strength. I am invincible. I have been burned, spat upon, trampled and cursed, but I overcome all to unfurl, soar, and inspire again. I am the Star Spangled Banner; I am Old Glory; I am the American Flag, a symbol of freedom, forever.

  14. 14. Patriotism By Sir Walter Scott BREATHES there the man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, 'This is my own, my native land!' Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd As home his footsteps he hath turn'd From wandering on a foreign strand? If such there breathe, go, mark him well; For him no Minstrel raptures swell; High though his titles, proud his name, Boundless his wealth as wish can claim; Despite those titles, power, and pelf, The wretch, concentred all in self, Living, shall forfeit fair renown, And, doubly dying, shall go down To the vile dust from whence he sprung, Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung.

  16. 16. Land of Liberty Anonymous I love my country's pine-clad hills, Her thousand bright and gushing rills, Her sunshine and her storms; Her rough and rugged rocks, that rear Their hoary heads high in the air In wild, fantastic forms. I love her rivers, deep and wide, Those mighty streams that seaward glide To seek the ocean's breast; Her smiling fields, her pleasant vales, Her shady dells, her flowery dales, The haunts of peaceful rest. I love her forests, dark and lone, For there the wild bird's merry tone I hear from morn till night; And there are lovelier flowers, I ween, Than e'er in Eastern lands were seen, In varied colors bright. Her forests and her valleys fair, Her flowers that scent the morning air-- All have their charms for me; But more I love my country's name, Those words that echo deathless fame, The Land of Liberty.
