A Traditional Memorial Day

"In great deed something abides.
On great fields, something stays.
Forms change and pass, bodies disappear but spirits linger
to consecrate ground for the vision place of the soul.

And reverent men and women from afar and
generations that know us not and that we know not of,
shall come here to ponder and to dream
and the power of the vision shall pass into their souls."

~ Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain ~
