John T. Bird ’73

(1955–    )

An original Memorial Day poem…

Last Monday in May

We pause to remember those who died
With so much courage, so much pride

They’ll never come back, yet memories endure
To remind us of freedom: fragile, pure

We’re worthy of their sacrifice if we pause each day
Not just on the last Monday in May
