Remembrance Day is today and at 11am this morning we had 1-3 minutes of silence to remember those who have served our country. To be honest, I’m no good with saying words for these, so I’ll let Laurence Binyon talk… (thanks Paula for the inspiration to post)
Ode of Remembrance
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal,
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
There is music in the midst of desolation,
And a glory that shines upon her tears.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
