White Stars and Crosses, A Poem by Author Bill Flynn

On Veteran’s Day, we pause to remember those who sacrificed their lives for each of us. The Crosses and Stars of David above their graves circle the globe.

I saw them at Anzio Beach

As far as my eyes could reach.

 

At Normandy, crosses and stars all white

Thousands lost in an invasion fight.

 

In Luxembourg at equal space

General Patton next to a private’s place.

 

At Hawaii’s Punch Bowl all in file

Pacific warriors with reporter Ernie Pyle.

 

So many white stars and crosses

Too many symbols of our losses.
