9/11 Memorial Poem

I would like to share a poem written by the illustrator of my book, which I think is very moving:


Oh walls, in memory
Rise ye up to the stars.
Reflect the moon upon the future,
Bringing loving thoughts of reflections past.
Remember those who were lost that day,
Not in a miserable maudlin way,
But with love and pride and hope to say
You remain in our hearts,
In our souls, in our thoughts.
You remind us to stay alert
Praise these memorials as they
Rise from the dirt,
The earth that is home of the
Free and the brave.
Our wondrous America  
Waits to be saved.
