"A Tribute For Memorial Day" by Annie M. Toohey (1922)

A Tribute For Memorial Day:

The sweetest flowers strewn to-day

        Are those that mother-hands again

Place o'er the sacred sod or spray

        Of once-deep-crimson'd battle main!

The sweetest peans chimed to-day

        Were those of comrades gathered 'round

Where fallen heroes' ashes lay

        In many a flag-covered mound.

                                ANNIE M. TOOHEY.

Troy Times. May 29, 1922: 4 col 4.
