Mike Vinci reflects on Memorial Day in verse.

“Rows”

Unending rows of granite stones

Stretch on across the field

Like soldiers they now represent

In lines that will not yield

Beside each one a simple flag

Reminder of a cause

A silence hangs there in the air

While time is put on pause

Below each stone a hero rests

Next to him his brother

Throughout time a pledge they’ll keep

Protecting one another
