Hot Dogs, Picnics and Parades, by poet laureate Cathy Weiss

“Each year I design a unique poem with a special message to be read at our Memorial Day Parade. This year’s poem is a Persona Poem, a style made popular by Robert Browning and Ezra Pound. The poet creates a character to convey an idea. In this poem the idea is sacrifice.” -Cathy Weiss, Clinton Poet Laureate
