Remembrance

Where poppies blow in swathes of bloody red
So fragile ‘gainst the corn in crispy air
Let echoes of the past sound through each head
In recall of all those who served out there
And debt of gratitude prevail through time
For those who gave their life for their country
Remembering each one who bravely chimed
Who served on land, in air or out at sea
And in those meadows once the battle fields
Hold onto mem’ries etched forever more
N’er to forget who paid for freedom’s yield
As winter sun reveals their glory sure
    And through the years let none ever contemn
    Just what they gave as we remember them

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
