Remembrance Sunday 2015

Seventeen monuments
stand in silence
to remember those
silenced for good

From the wilds of the sea
or the mud of Flanders
From the depths of oceans
Return they will no more

A century passes
as they have now all passed
in centuries hence
will they still be remembered?

From Ypres to Gallipoli
From Basra to Baghdad
At the Beasts of Holm
they rest, their sacrifice done

At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them
We will remember them
