Honoring ... Pearl Harbor Day

Honoring ... Pearl Harbor Day

Today is December 7th, Pearl Harbor Day. May we never forget those who lost their lives in the Pacific on this date in 1941.

Here's my own tribute to those brave souls.



Pearl of Great Price

A Rhymed Encore on the Start of a War



A world at war,
From shore to shore,
Its fury to unfurl.
No turning back,
The first attack,
The Harbor known as Pearl.

A bay of beads,
Themselves the seeds,
The ships below the sea.
The sunken boats
Have cast their votes,
The cost dear to be free.

The combat flyers nailed the fleet,
As kamikazes threw their heat.
The desolation was complete,
The Harbor known as Pearl.

A bay of beads,
Themselves the seeds,
The ships below the sea.
The sunken boats
Have cast their votes,
The cost dear to be free.

The battleships, the bombs laid low;
Their masts waved to the deadly foe,
As battered bulks were sunk below
The Harbor known as Pearl.

A bay of beads,
Themselves the seeds,
The ships below the sea.
The sunken boats
Still cast their votes,
The cost dear to be free.
