A Remembrance Day Poem


Why are they selling poppies Mummy?

Selling poppies in Town today.

The poppies, child, are flowers of love

For the men that marched away.


But why have they chosen the poppy Mummy?

Why not a beautiful rose?

Because, my child, men fought and died

in fields where poppies grow.


But why are the poppies so red Mummy?

Why are the poppies so red?

Red is the colour of blood my child

The blood that our soldiers shed.


The heart of the poppy is black Mummy

Why does it have to be black?

Black, my child, is a symbol of grief

For the men that never came back.


But why Mummy are you crying so?

Your tears are giving you pain

My tears are my fears for you my child

For the world is forgetting again.

They shall not grow old, as we are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, 

We will remember them.
