The Poppy by Noah Downs Brown
Remembrance by Daniel Rattenbury
As the wars come and wars go,
As wars never end,
As the eerie silence echoes,
As we say goodbye to our friends.
The soldiers so strong and brave,
Who fought so hard for our freedom,
For us their lives they gave,
To save the kingdom.
Fields of poppies blow in the breeze,
Where the British Tommy once stood,
All the action now a freeze,
The enemy is surrendered for good
What a wonderful camaraderie,
So we can be free.
Remembrance by Nathan Geddes
A hundred years we mark this day
In a land filled with war
All the children run away
It makes a country cold and poor
It shows the world of upset
A country filled with disaster
This war has not ended yet
I have so many cuts but not a plaster
Running a land of fear
This will not end
Why am I living here?
I will live not defend
Sun will fade away,
Our hearts we will not give away.
