Remembrance Day Poem

Remembrance Day Poem
Abigail Higgott

The time has come to remember those
Who gave their lives to defeat our foes
So go ahead, wear that red flower
To respect the soldiers in their toughest hour

They fought for a gruelling four whole years
Through all the devastation and the tears
Our whole country they managed to save
Thanks to the selfless actions they gave

After the war had come to an end
And soldiers were home to their family and friends
Beautiful poppies began to grow
Blood red and vibrant, beautifully so

It’s by these poppies that we remember
The ruthless war when it comes to November
So, when you see a poppy, bright and red
Think of the amazing soldiers and bow your head
