A few weeks back, I shared with you a poem by Rudyard Kipling and the response was terrific. This week I’m sharing with you another poem. It is by an American poet named Jim Moore and it was displayed for several years in the New York City subway system. With Memorial Day upon us, it just felt fitting.

of a country that no longer existed,
but once had ruled the world.
