MEMORIAL DAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: They are not dead! They are not dead!
Last Line: On thids memorial day.
Subject(s): Holidays; Memorial Day; Declaration Day

They are not dead! They are not dead!
Those soldiers true and brave;
The heroes who suffered, fought and bled,
Our country dear to save.

Their names are in the Book of Life
Their battles are all over;
All their heart-burnings, pains and strifes
Have ceased forevermore.

They are all living now above,
Tho' their ashes here may be;
And inspire us still with fervent love
For home and liberty.

They are all living, and they see,
(Tho' invisible are they)
Our country prosperous and free,
On thids Memorial Day.
