North American Dreaming: Granite Gardens

William Burkholder remind us that our freedom was assured by those who lie in granite gardens.

The seeds of nations
lie in granite gardens.
Each with flag and brass plaque
Adorned.
Measuring our growth
in their repose
in the tears and lament
of wives and daughters
Forlorn.
Countless irrigated rows
of bloody ideals,
Convictions and sacrifices.
Granite gardens
where freedom lies
