On Hearing The News

A VERY SPECIAL EDITORIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

On Hearing The News

The Day ends
as days often do,
quick and clean and gone;
A momentary cloud obscures the Sun
yet the Sun shines on eternal,
memories traipse like clouds
across our consciousness,
we all reminisce,we all mourn;
Somewhere
an aged veteran
listening to the radio
recalls,
The young man
in pressed naval uniform
smiling and laughing in the sun,
there was yet a war to be won
and a world made safe and sane again;
those days end
as days often do..
