MEMORIAL DAY.


They are not dead! They are not dead!
Those soldiers true and brave;
The heroes who suffered, fought and bled,
Our country dear to save.

Their names are in the Book of Life
Their battles all are o'er;
All their heart-burnings, pains and strifes
Have ceased forevermore.

They all are living now above,
Tho' their ashes here may be;
And inspire us still with fervent love
For home and liberty.

They all are living, and they see,
(Tho' invisible are they)
Our country prosperous and free,
On this Memorial Day.
