Memorial in the Presidio

(at the San Francisco National Cemetery Overlook:)

View of the now-75-year-old Golden Gate Bridge,
Dark Bay, dark skies, dark hills,
Everything a sort of Blue.
Sitting amidst a copse
Of eucalyptus trees, I
Hear the breeze stir peeling bark
Like a metronome,
Beating back and forth
Against the trunks,
Another one
Whirligig to the ground.

Archibald MacLeish quote on a plaque:

“…give our deaths your meaning.
We were young…we died.
Remember us.”
