The Sunday Posts 2012/Remembrance Day



This weeks poem is dedicated to the memory of the fallen, the departed and those who suffer the effect of war regardless of nationality.

 
Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we sprung.

Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.

Alfred Edward Houseman
