On the cliffs above that sandy beach

Learn a lesson only sight can teach

It’s a vast stretch of a foreign land

That belongs to us, in our command

And each time I’m there my heart does cry

For buried men who cannot reply.

Ten thousand erect markers still stand

So faraway from their own homeland

On American soil by that beach

That’s as far as they would ever reach !
