HAND IN HAND
… and on the news, I watched that evening,
as sailors and Marines complete their leaving
with wives and babies by their sides,
they said their teary, tense good byes
one thing I noted as they strolled along:
she leaned on him; he looked so strong.
He was leaving for a foreign land.
She looked at him; he held her hand.
