Memorial Day Poems for Kids - Printable Children's Memorial Day PoetryDecoration Day

selected by Evaleen Stein

See the soldiers, little ones!
Hark the drummers' beat!
See them with their flags and guns
Marching down the street!

Tattered flags from out the wars,
Let us follow these
To the little stripes and stars
Twinkling through the trees.

Watch them waving through the grass
Where the heroes sleep!
Thither gently let us pass
On this day we keep.

Let us bring our blossoms, too,
All our gardens grow;
Lilacs honey-sweet with dew,
And the lilies' snow.

Every posy of the May,
Every bloomy stem,
Every bud that breaks today
Gather now for them.

Lay the lilies o'er them thus,
Lovingly, for so
Down they laid their lives for us,
Long and long ago.

Heap above them bud and bough;
Softly, ere we cease,
God, we pray Thee, gently now
Fold them in Thy peace!
