Memorial Day poems from BSE writing club


A day where we can say thanks to those who have

fought to keep us safe and to have freedom.

A day where we can remember

those have fallen for us the battlefield.

A day where we can say thanks

for all they have done.

It is about the soldiers who have fallen

Some were named Collin

All were very kind

Some were hard to find

The war was not fun or nice

Some soldiers had lice

The war was not fun

We were glad when it was done

They served their country well

Then they proved they would

Who fought and risked their life

That gave their life to help us

We will remember them

They helped us get the freedom we have now

And for the stuff they did

They gave us the rights we have today

And that day is Memorial day!

To Those who Have fallen

I write for those who have fallen

As we fall in


Even though we weep

They will be with us

Even in our sleep

So I wish they would return,

Even I yearn.

They fought with all their might

It's time for us

To join the fight!

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is celebrated for veterans who died

Each year we celebrate it.

Many people died to give us freedom.

Our veterans fought for freedom and honor.

Rivals threaten us tried to kill us but we fought back.

I am so thankful.

After a war there was another after another.

Let us have freedom or we'll fight to the death.

Die or give us freedom we said.

A war was cruel, brutal, hard but we did not give.

Years past, finally peace and freedom, I am thankful.

Memorial Day

The bullet shoots.

They fall to the ground.

You go to a funeral,

And thank them.

They go back to war.

You really miss them.

They're all you can think about.

When they return

You start to cry.

Then, they cry and

Say they survived.

You say you love them

And you never want them to go.

They are awesome

For Fighting for us

In war.

Soldier Rights

These mighty men have

a light in their hearts.

They say someone has to do it.

So they fight for our rights.

And they risk their lives.

Memorial Day is a time to remember

all the soldiers who died to fight for our rights.

Memorial Day is always on the final day of May.

We are very thankful for the people

who fought for our rights.

We decorate the graves of the soldiers

with wreaths and flags.

It is a time to remember.

We should be thankful and respectful.

People are proud of their families

because they know they did something right.

We may not like war

but someone has to fight.

On Memorial Day we are kind to others

because we are all American.

So celebrate because you have freedom.
