MEMORIAL DAY, MAY 30TH.
Lest we forget those who fought for the Liberties which we enjoy, may the day be fittingly observed.
Soldier, we do not forget;
Purple pansies, mignonette
Show where mourning hearts are met.
Though you’ve traveled farther yet,
Past the worry and the fret
Where a scarlet sun has set.
Vivid rose and violet
On your grave with tears are wet;
Soldier, we do not forget.
