Lest We Forget

Across the barren battlefields
Red poppies spread before the eyes
A memorial to fallen ones
At peace now in the setting sun
Commemorating those who died

For let us never dare forget
Those who gave lives for liberty
As poppy fields epitomize
Let us be still and do likewise
In homage to those who set us free

And so where scarlet carpet falls
Commemorations’ red display
Spare time to think of those now lost
Consider such their greatest cost
Each year on this Remembrance Day

Lest we forget

Lest We Forget

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
