Dirge without Music.

It's hard to be happy today. We are burying four police officers.

"Down, down, down they go into the darkness of the grave,

Gentle they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;

Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.

I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned."

-- Edna St. Vincent Millay
