The Normandy beaches
Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, Sword
American, British, Canadian
Pillboxes, Belgian Gates, devil’s garden, Rommel’s asparagus

Buried on separated grounds
American, British, Canadian
Marble, granite, stone, wood
Christian, Jewish, known, unknown

The Normandy beaches are empty
save for footprints of those on vacation
offering gratitude to those
who walked before on beaches that were never a vacation for a soldier.
