Remember - A poem by Gus Gallagher


On the 11th  of November we stand with pride

To honour those who fought and died

For those who answered  country’s call

To rise, advance and then to fall.

Think well of those who are long gone

On Paschendale, Vimy Ridge, the  Somme

Without whose fight we could not say 

The words we use so free today

So on this day let us remember

On the 11th of November

Those that in the time of strife

Gave their all for our  way of life
