Memorial Day Poems

An old, but good Huffington Post column: John Lundberg picks 3 poems for Memorial Day.  

Includes Jehanne Dubrow’s Before the Deployment, Laurence Binyon’s “For the Fallen” and

Grass
Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo.
Shovel them under and let me work—
————————————–I am the grass; I cover all.
