Memorial Day by Gregory Orr 1 After our march from the Hudson to the top of Cemetery Hill, we Boy Scouts proudly endured  the sermons and hot sun while Girl Scouts  lolled among graves in the maple shade. When members of the veterans' honor guard aimed their bone-white rifles skyward and fired, I glimpsed beneath one metal helmet the salmon-pink flesh of Mr. Webber's nose, restored after shrapnel tore it.
2 Friends who sat near me in school died in Asia, now lie here under new stones that small flags flap beside. It's fifth-grade recess: war stories. Mr. Webber stands before us and plucks his glass eye from its socket, holds it high between finger and thumb. The girls giggle  and scream; the awed boys gape. The fancy pocket watch  he looted from a shop in Germany ticks on its chain.

Gregory Orr, "Memorial Day" from The Caged Owl: New and Selected Poems
