Yum.
But lest we forget, Memorial Day is a day to say thank-you for those that gave the ultimate sacrifice –

Day is done…
Gone the sun
From the lake…
From the hills…
From the sky.
All is well…
Safely rest
God is nigh.

Fading light….
Dims the sight
And a star….
Gems the sky….
Gleaming bright
From afar….
Drawing nigh
Falls the night.

Thank you.
