November 11th, Remembrance Day: So in gratitude of silence and all those who have served, sleep now, you have earned it. Then I saw a little lad, who held the hand of a gray-haired gent, The youngster seemed oh so proud, of the older man, now tired and bent.
He was in the company of an elderly gentleman, perhaps a relative. These people fought for their country alot, Even though some would get caught. The people fought for freedom and peace, Not for death, at one person apiece.
On shores stained red,on hands and knees; it was our freedom that they sought. One day a year they come as one. Crawling across dead mangled bodies, that were once soldiers with a name, Now they are just part of the landscape, they can no longer ask, who is to blame?
The boys fought for apple pie, King and country. To remember those who died. In the darkness of night, they marched together, side by side, With only the moon and stars above them, as their guide, All around them, the sounds of guns and many tanks, Slowly moving along rocky shores, and slippery muddy banks.
The boys fought for the right to always live free: Do not step away from me. Their daughters, sons and wives. Poems sent in by our readers Remembrance In Flanders field the poppies grow, For the reason we all should know.
All of mankind, Side by side in the trenches, some strangers, some family, just trying to survive, Cold and wet, frostbitten fingers and toes, death looks better than being here alive. I lose many friends.
Before the epitaph of stone, it seemed each veteran stood alone With memories deeply stamped within, recalling how it all had been. The young men that left, some had never even been kissed, Some of them came from good homes, others, not even missed.
In any event, a question posed by the youngsterwhom I estimated was about six years oldprompted me to put this piece together. Once worn by people, row on row. We are supposed to remember all those that are gone, Those that fought for their lives, and ours, was that wrong? A moment of silence is what we do, For all those who fought through this too.
Though they came home, a part of them Caught in the war, did stay. Yet you march on, not looking back- Onward, forward, you attack.DLTK's Crafts for Kids Remembrance Day or Veteran's Day Activities. LEST WE FORGET.
