Remembrance Sunday

Today is remembrance Sunday where we remember those who died so that people like me could write blogs and have opinions on things.

Lets not rap this in nationalistic fervour. Today is to remember those young people who have given their lives to protect their countries and freedoms.

He's gone, and all our plans
Are useless indeed.
We'll walk no more on Cotswold
Where the sheep feed
Quietly and take no heed.

His body that was so quick
Is not as you
Knew it, on Severn river
Under the blue
Driving our small boat through.

You would not know him now ...
But still he died
Nobly, so cover him over
With violets of pride
Purple from Severn side.

Cover him, cover him soon!
And with thick-set
Masses of memoried flowers—
Hide that red wet
Thing I must somehow forget.

To his love - Ivor Gurney
