Listen To This Powerful Poem From Maine For Veterans Day
We've featured made music videos from the Flooded Cellar band of Lovell, Maine here before with their funny takes on stackin' wood, mud season, checkin' for ticks, and more.
Today, it's a serious moment from our friends as they honor our brave men and women in uniform. Flooded Cellar led by Dennis Barker and Turf Ravenwood, provide an excellent musical backdrop that adds tension to a moving poem written by Guy Purinton of Fryeburg.
It's called Teardrops on the Ivy and beautifully expresses the fear and worry families members experience when a loved one is far, far from home in harm's way protecting our freedoms and defending our country.
We thought you'd like to listen to this very well done piece and follow along with the powerful words displayed on screen.
The narration by Jeff Tripp is something we think would make Johnny Cash proud too. Well done, gentlemen.
Thank you to all our Maine veterans. We love you dearly and are forever grateful for your service and sacrifice.
