Romance 111111

Today is Veterans Day, originally noted as Armistice Day (or Remembrance Day)  to commemmorate the end of hostilities on the western front of World War I at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

Today’s prompt is drawn from Robert Frost’s 1917 poem Not to Keep:

They had given him back to her, but not to keep.
