Memorial Day 2020

As we prepare for the first parade of summer,
We see now one of virtual demonstration,
Although unfamiliar ways to observe with honor,
Call for ingenuity , expressing admiration.

While the reluctance of warm weather,
May discourage lavish and abundant bloom,
The anticipation of time together,
Is more in the heart than in park or dining room.

Thanks to availability of screens,
Inventiveness in ways of support and greeting,
While limited in touch, abundant shared scenes,
Still can make memories at spring’s heartfelt meeting.

So, heroes or loved ones whom we recall,
Will be in our memories with love and respect,
God bless our land and family, lift us all,
As, in our social distance , we connect.
