    The Soldier

    During the First World War, Brooke joined the British Mediterranean
    Expeditionary Force, and died of an infection in 1915 en route to
    Gallipoli. The most famous lines from his poem The Soldier are often
    read in remembrance of those who die far from home fighting for their
    country, suggesting that soldiers take a part of their home nation with them to the grave.
    If I should die, think only this of me:
    That there's some corner of a foreign field
    That is for ever England. - Rupert Brooke

    A Requiem 

    Skimming lightly, wheeling still,
       The swallows fly low
    Over the field in clouded days,
       The forest-field of Shiloh —
    Over the field where April rain
    Solaced the parched ones stretched in pain
    Through the pause of night
    That followed the Sunday fight
       Around the church of Shiloh —
    The church so lone, the log-built one,
    That echoed to many a parting groan
          And natural prayer
       Of dying foemen mingled there —
    Foemen at morn, but friends at eve —
       Fame or country least their care:
    (What like a bullet can undeceive!)
       But now they lie low,
    While over them the swallows skim,
       And all is hushed at Shiloh. - Herman Melville

     Have You?

    Have you heard
    The rattling of the guns?
    The booming of the grenades?
    The commanding of your chums?
    The whining of the air raids?
    Have you seen
    The planes fly by
    Whilst looking at the moonlit sky?
    Seen people hold their hands up high
    Whilst shouting “the end is nigh”?
    Have you smelt
    The stinking of the petrol?
    The odour of your team mates’ sweat?
    The smell of blood from the medical tent?
    The muddy stench of the trenches?
    Have you ever felt sadness overwhelm you in Flanders field? - Elliot Longsdale   

       Lest We Forget

    Remember those who died.
    Those we loved, the one's who cried.
    As I sit here in my room,
    I picture the banging and the boom.
    I try to pull myself together as I lie:
    They gave their lives to keep us free.
    To save the innocent like you and me.
    I am thankful for no war,
    As we wear our poppies in remorse:
    Let's work together to keep this country our's
    And on each Remembrance Day to wear a flower
    So put on a smile and don't sigh,
    Stay together and keep your head held high,
    If we stand together, no one will break our power. 


    Long ago and far away
    across the ocean
    wild and wide,
    the young men stormed
    an alien shore
    where many of them died.
    Here and now
    old men remember
    the valor and the gore,
    and the boyish faces
    of their youth
    that are young for ever more. - William Bedford    


    Eleventh day of the eleventh
    Brings silence
    Red Poppies
    Are swaying in the wind and are
    Not forgotten
    Collect poppies
    Every poppy is every man who died in battle
    Are passing but the eleventh month in the
    Year we never forget. 

     The White Cliffs of Dover

    There'll be bluebirds over
    The White Cliffs of Dover,
    Tomorrow just you wait and see.
    There'll be love and laughter
    And peace ever after,
    Tomorrow when the world is free. 

    They shall grow not old
    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. - Laurence Binyon 

    And Death Shall Have No Dominion
    Written between the wars in 1933, Thomas's poem takes on a broad theme of remembrance and the eternity of the human spirit.
    They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
    Though they go mad they shall be sane,
    Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
    Though lovers be lost love shall not;
    And death shall have no dominion. - Dylan Thomas

         Are You Sleeping?

    (to the tune of “Frère Jacques”)
    See the poppies
    See the poppies
    Oh so red
    Oh so red
    Growing on the hillside
    Growing on the hillside
    Soldiers lay dead
    Soldiers lay dead
    We remember
    We remember
    On this day
    On this day
    Soldiers on the hillside
    Soldiers on the hillside
    Far away
    Far away  

    Every poppy for a life that was given,
    Mothers said goodbye to their sons,
    Everyone joined together to save our country,
    Memorials stand today so we don't forget,
    Brave, innocent men who gave their lives,
    Each and everyone of them,
    Remembered. - Brooke  Harvey 

     Remembrance Day

    We wear a poppy
    On Remembrance Day,
    And at eleven
    We stand and pray.
    Wreaths are put
    Upon a grave.
    As we remember
    Our soldiers brave. 

    Remembering That Island

    In a dream as real as war
    I see the vast stinking Pacific suddenly awash
    Once more with bodies, landings on all beaches,
    The bodies of dead and living gone back to appointed places,
    A ten year old resurrection,
    And myself once more in the scourging wind, waiting, waiting
    While the rich oratory and the lying famous corrupt
    Senators mine our lives for another war. - Thomas McGrath 

    NOVEMBER 11th

    In the years of the war
    Brave men left to fight
    For the lives of others
    For the human right.
    They all left their families
    And marched through the door
    To act for their country
    To be in the war.
    They fought for then
    And they fought for us now
    Most of them died
    Thought it's a wonder how.
    Because they did all for the benefit
    Of our country today.
    So on November 11th
    Our remembrance we pay.

             In Gratitude of Silence

    Silent now the soldiers sleep, their tales long laid to rest.
    I knew them not yet still I weep and place a poppy o'er my breast.
    They were husbands, brothers, fathers, sons; so valiantly they fought.
    On shores stained red,on hands and knees; it was our freedom that they sought.
    Couageously they stood their ground but freedom carries a cost.
    Thousands of men were wounded and countless lives were lost.
    So in gratitude of silence and all those who have served,
    sleep now, you have earned it. Your peace is well deserved. - Debbie Holick

         In Flanders Fields

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.
    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders Fields.
    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders Fields. - John McCrae 


    You who live secure
    Who return at evening to find
    Hot food and friendly faces:
    Consider whether this is a man,
    Who labours in the mud
    Who knows no peace
    Who fights for a crust of bread
    Who dies at a yes or a no.
    Consider whether this is a woman,
    Without hair or name
    With no more strength to remember
    Eyes empty and womb cold
    As a frog in winter.
    Consider that this has been:
    I commend these words to you.
    Engrave them on your hearts
    When you are in your house,
    when you walk on your way,
    When you go to bed, when you rise.
    Repeat them to your children.
    Or may your house crumble,
    Disease render you powerless,
    Your offspring avert their faces from you. - Primo Levi 

      I Have a Rendezvous with Death

    I have a rendezvous with Death
    At some disputed barricade,
    When Spring comes back with rustling shade
    And apple-blossoms fill the air —
    I have a rendezvous with Death
    When Spring brings back blue days and fair.
    It may be he shall take my hand
    And lead me into his dark land
    And close my eyes and quench my breath —
    It may be I shall pass him still.
    I have a rendezvous with Death
    On some scarred slope of battered hill,
    When Spring comes round again this year
    And the first meadow-flowers appear.
    God knows ’twere better to be deep
    Pillowed in silk and scented down,
    Where Love throbs out in blissful sleep,
    Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
    Where hushed awakenings are dear . . .
    But I’ve a rendezvous with Death
    At midnight in some flaming town,
    When Spring trips north again this year,
    And I to my pledged word am true,
    I shall not fail that rendezvous. - Alan Seeger 

    My heart was filled with such delight as I stepped out
    and thought my family might have survived.
    I couldn’t believe the war was over.
    I felt like birds in freedom flying, flying out of sight.
    I remembered the people that fought with me and to myself I exclaimed
    As I stepped onto a piece of wood I saw it said “Rest in Peace”
    So I shoved it into the ground and said
    “We will remember
    Always and Forever”. - William Wallis 


    Soldiers dying, people crying, families torn apart,
    No one happy, everyone snappy, people with broken hearts,

    The war is over! Hooray! Rejoicing! Everyone smiling, happy at last,
    But wait, what of the soldiers who died, people who cried, the ones who feared, who shed a tear,
    The soldiers? They’re buried with a cross over their head,
    The people? Still crying, their hearts are dying, and sometimes they wish they were dead,

    So, on Remembrance Day, remember the soldiers, the families, the people, remember the things they did for our life, our future.

    Remember them. - Syrah  

    The silence screams across the fields and tears rolled down his face.
    His son followed behind him, he dropped to the ground and pulled out
    the poppy torch.
    The gunfire surrounded the field.
    Son, take the torch to victory, don't let the flame go out, for me don't.
    The bravery, the boldness, the hero inside, his last words won the war.
    20 years later
    The Flanders field again.
    He must pass it on as his father did,
    With joy, with hope and most of all courage.
    The torch led him the way, son follow the poppy's code,
    The stem will give you strength and the red will bring you bravery.
    Goodbye son. - Charlotte Peckover
