Haiku Poem – 記念碑

our soldiers
flag raised high
all remember

(Ben version)
きねんひ や へいし きょうりょく はた あげる

(Michiko version)
あきばれ に こっき かかげる へいし たち

Since tomorrow, November 11th, is Veteran’s Day, and today is the birthday for the United States Marines, I went to see a famous statue yesterday. The statue is in Washington D.C.. It is in the national cemetery. The statue is in honor of all Marines. The statue shows four soldiers that are raising an American flag. The statue is very large and you can see the Capitol from there. Since the statue is surrounded by Arlington National Cemetery, at that place, it is very quiet and solemn.
