Apr 19: Concord Recessional

Inspired by Emerson's "Concord Hymn," which is today's reading.

The stone they raised still stands to-day
Where embattled farmers fought the foe;
Interactive, I'm sure, is the display
To which the field-tripped children go.

'Gainst empire, then, the farmers fought.
But for it, now, our mission creeps.
The liberty their blood had bought
Goes down the stream which seaward sweeps.
