The bustle in a house
The morning after death
Is solemnest of industries
Enacted upon earth,
 
The sweeping up the heart,
And putting love away
We shall not want to use again
Until Eternity
 
         Emily Dickinson

A Soldier's Prayer
 
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
 
I am a thousand wind that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
 
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
 
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER

            by Billy Rose

 

 

There's a graveyard near the White House

    Where the Unknown Soldier lies,

And the flowers there are sprinkled

    With the tears from mother's eyes.

 

I stood there not so long ago

    With roses for the brave,

And suddenly I heard a voice

    Speak from out the grave:

 

"I am the Unknown Soldier,

    The spirit voice began

"And I think I have the right

    To ask some questions man to man.

 

"Are my buddies taken care of?

    Was their victory so sweet?

Is that big reward you offered

    Selling pencils on the street?

 

"Did they really win the freedom

    They battled to achieve?

Do you still respect that Croix de Guerre

    Above that empty sleeve?

 

 "Does a gold star in the window

    Now mean anything at all?

I wonder how my old girl feels

    When she hears a bugle call.

 

"And that baby who sang

    Hello, Central, give me no man’s land-

Can they replace her daddy

    With a military band?

 

"I wonder if the profiteers

    Have satisfied their greed?

I wonder if a soldier's mother

    Ever is in need?

 

"I wonder if the kings, who planned it all

    Are really satisfied?

They played their game of checkers

    And eleven million died.

 

"I am the Unknown Soldier

    And maybe I died in vain,

But if I were alive and my country called,

    I'd do it all over again
