The Lone Survivor
At the apex of the sapling, bare
A single yellow leaf
Flutters wildly in the south wind
Quite stout in its belief
That it alone will conquer
What others did not endure
That when the days grow longer
Its grasp will still be sure
flag on Suribachi
|As penned by Rudyard Kipling In
his lines entitled "IF," And
immortalized by O. Henry, This last leaf gives me a lift by holding out, against all odds And winning, through
today. The victorys in the holding on, Tomorrow?
