Balladeer,

I've read this before when I've searched out your writings here .. it touched me deeply then, and touches me now as I read it again.  Words seem so lacking .. this is beautiful, an amazing tribute.

Thank you for sharing
and remembering

I wasn't in a place where I could read this when you posted it... but it was in my thoughts... and is always in my heart.

Being me, I was as ready to get home as I'd been to go on vacation... and wishing I'd chosen an earlier flight. But... I'm glad that wishing was for naught... for if my impatience had been rewarded, I would have missed one of the most touching moments of my trip.

We remember... and most of us do so with respect. But in London, where many buildings still show the scars of shelling... people really do STOP to remember. I was in Gatwick airport... as noisy and busy a place as could be... which made the complete silence following the bell's toll even more dramatic. And having just lost my favorite veteran last year... I'm so glad I was there for that incredibly poignant moment.

Don't ever apologize for posting this... many of us wait for it, even knowing we'll be reading the last lines through tears.

I was just surfing along and I ran into this poem. It stopped me. I think I read it over about 4 times. I see why this is your tradition. This was just an awsome poem

Poetry is just the evidence of life.
If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. "

Very few can write like this...very few have the ability to take you to places you've been without leaving a computer monitor...
