Our Welland Park creative writers have written some inspirational Remembrance Day “Lest We Forget” poems. You can read all the others from the links at the bottom.
The terrible thing that rips families apart
The poppies standing tall in the field
Standing as a reminder of the blood spilled over the field and generational hearts
Heroic soldiers stood hidden in the trenches
Fighting for our freedom
Many days on end they fought
Some may be barely adults
Some still in childhood
Desperate to serve the country
The 880,000 soldiers who laid down their lives for the better.
On the 11 of November and every day we shall honour them
