The Lady Speaks

In Remembrance II

This Memorial Day, take time to remember and honor those who gave all, and those who are in harm’s way.

Take time to reflect upon the sacrifices still being made upon the altar of Ares; all those yet to die in our name.

“Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh — Falls the night.

“Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

“Then good night, peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn shineth bright,
God is near, do not fear — Friend, good night.”

— Composed By Major General Daniel Butterfield

Army of the Potomac, Civil War
