Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
Hearing their whispers

Even under the bright sky
the anthems of the brass bands
the applause of this community
as the veterans marched by

Hearing their whispers
those have died for our freedoms
their prayers that we would be faithful
to the beliefs we share together

Knowing they are watching
sensing them here with those assembled
watching down over us
as they have always done
