Dans un grand espace vert, un carrousel dort au soleil. Au travers des arbres, des pierres tombales se dressent. Un canon monte la garde.
Les pierres tombales, toutes blanches et alignées sont ornées de la couronne qui caractérise leur régiment. Sur une plaque au sol, on peut lire : « Nous nous souviendrons d'eux. » À l'entrée du cimetière, un panneau indique qu'il s'agit du Cimetière militaire national.
Des rangées de petites pierres blanches à l'effigie de milliers de soldats sont alignées. Ailleurs près d'un ange sculpté, un rocher supporte une plaque dédiée à la mémoire de Catherine M. E. Numan.
Dans les allées, les arbres donnent un caractère champêtre à l'endroit.
Un livre de pierre est ouvert sur le sol, pour Albert et Angeline.
Plus loin, on nous mène à la portion civile du cimetière où de très vieilles pierres sont érigées parmi de plus récentes. Puis on revient à la partie du cimetière militaire bien identifiée par le char d'assaut qui protège l'âme des défunts.
Ensuite on visite une partie où les stèles et les obélisques s'élèvent vers le ciel pour arriver à un mur garni de plaques.
On revient à l'impressionnant champ de pierres blanches à l'effigie des différents régiments de l'armée canadienne.
Dans une allée, des livres de granit trônent sur des socles de granit rose. C'est l'aire des poètes.
Au soleil couchant, les ombres s'allongent pour la nuit.
