Description

IN HONOR! IN MEMORY! IN TRIBUTE! MAKE THIS GO VIRAL! TO THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN, THAT WE MAY STAND FREE! TRIBUTE USING INSPIRATIONAL IMAGES AND MUSIC TO ENHANCE THE WORDS I SO LOVINGLY WROTE. "STONES OF WHITE" COPYRIGHT FRANK J. SCONZO, SR 1998 "STONES OF WHITE" THE STONES OF WHITE, ALL NEATLY SPACED. THE ORDER COMES, "RIFLES RETORT!" THE QUIET ECHOES THROUGH THE LAND. AS MUFFLED DRUMS GIVE THEIR REPORT. THE FLAG WAVES O'ER HEAD, FLIES HALF-STAFF, SALUTES WITH PRIDE. THE BREEZE RUFFLES THAT VALUED CLOTH TO HONOR THOSE WHO SERVED AND DIED. THE LADY STANDS ALONE. HER LAMP ALOFT DOES CAUSE HER CHEEK, A TEAR TO GLISTEN. THE BUGLE; 'TAPS', TO SAY GOODBYE, FALL UPON EARS THAT CAN NO LONGER LISTEN. QUIET SETTLES AS EVENING BOWS, LEAVING SPRAYS OF FLOWERS TO DOME. THOSE WHITE STONES, SHADOWS LENGTHENED LONG AS GOD CALLS OUR BRAVE SOLDIERS HOME!
