~HERE RESTS IN
KNOWN BUT TO GOD~
The Unknown Patriot
No, we know not your name,
nor, from whence you came,
and we know not, the color of your skin.
No, we know not to whom you prayed,
nor, what your practiced trade,
and, we know not your next of kin.
No, we know not your final words,
nor, if that they were heard,
and, we know not your place or station.
But, this we know be true,
that America, remembers you,
as a hero, and a patriot, of our nation.
