Hello all dear Bluebell Readers.

How about a poem to suit the day?


A time for picnics, time off work -
Vacations and the "Indy" -
A holiday, too often times
We forget what, it should be.
A time to pay respect to those
Who rallied to the battle cry -
Who gave their lives for liberty -
Those freedoms for you and I.
Such a waste of brave young souls -
Some still struggling through their youth
Who faced and fell willingly
Before wartimes' awful truth.
So as we share this holiday
With our friends or family -
Take a moment to give thanks to
Those who died so we'd stay free.
Let us strive for world peace -
For the end of greed and hate -
For next time, after "the war"
It just may be too damned late.
by Del "Abe" Jones

From his book of poetry, "THE WORLD, WAR, FREEDOM, AND MORE."
