Memorial Day will be observed on Monday, May 26th. The
significance of the observance will be diluted by competing sales
promotions and leisure pursuits for the extended holiday
A reader called to my attention a poem by Archibald MacLeish
(1892-1982), written while serving as Librarian for Congress. After
I encountered the poem years ago in college, it dropped from
memory. This masterpiece captures the essence of what Memorial Day
is all about.
THE YOUNG DEAD SOLDIERS DO NOT SPEAK
The young dead soldiers do not speak.
Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses:
Who has not heard them?
They have a silence that speaks for them at night
and when the clock counts.
They say: We were young. We have died.
They say: We have done what we could
but until it is finished it is not done.
They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished
no one can know what our lives gave.
They say: our deaths are not ours: they are yours,
They will mean what you make them.
They say: Whether our lives and our deaths were for
peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say,
It is you who must say this.
We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning.
We were young, they say. We have died; remember us.
MacLeish had served as an ambulance driver and artillery officer
in World War I. His post-war years included law school, a lengthy
stay in Paris, and appointment by President Roosevelt to revitalize
a disorganized Library of Congress. During World War II, he served
in the Research and Analysis Branch of the Office of Strategic
Services. Post-war, MacLeish assumed a distinguished professorship
at Harvard. He was awarded three Pulitzer Prizes, two for poetry,
one for drama. Find a quiet place and read his tribute on Memorial
