LEST WE FORGET
I'd like to share with you this beautiful poem written by a local 10 year old schoolgirl called Georgia
Great memorials are set in stone now to commemorate the injured and the dead
World War Two was hard and painful, many tears were shed
This is how my poem goes, both pain and happiness it shows...
In 1939 the start of the war was declared, many people hopeful, many people scared
Most women were used to baking a cake and cleaning the home
now they were making a gun, World War Two had truly begun
Ferocious fights and beastly battles...
It wasn't a fairy tale, there weren't any castles
But it came to an end, the blood, sweat and tears were shed
Many husbands, brothers, fathers lay on the battlefield dead.
When for two minutes you stop and think, although to us it is just a blink
compared to the wars where our soldiers fought, let us think how much it has taught
How countries can unite
How friendships can be made
How wrongs can be put right and all fears be allayed
So on Remembrance Day wear your poppy with pride
For all the soliders alive
and for the ones that have died.
God Bless them all
