Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
Standing When They Passed - v2

The girls and me
like the others
seated on the curb, some in chairs
as the bands marched by

Standing when they passed
the ones who fought for us
carrying our country's colors
for which so many paid the price

Stopping to honor
those who fought and died
those who came home again
and those fighting for us now.
