Soldiers in the trenches 

filled with thoughts of home, 

of  family and friends 

wherever they may roam. 


How tranquil is The Somme now 

after war is done, 

with blood red poppies dancing 

in the autumn sun. 

Names upon the war graves, 

of those who gave their lives 

as they fought to keep our freedom, 

made the greatest sacrifice. 

But they shall never die, 

all those boys and men 

because upon Armistice Day 

we will remember them.
