In dismal gray of rainy day,
A poppy-pinned lapel,
Reminds us all of Flanders Fields
Where lie the brave that fell.

A time for us to honour
All those who fought and died.
Their loss was mourned by families
As their nation’s peoples cried.

A war is so destructive
~ No side can truly win.
Tears fall down from heaven,
As flags blow in the wind.

gut wrenching and a wonderful Reply to Ed's Challenge also.  Well done.

The greatest beauty on earth, is
found in the hearts of those
who love....

Something that I feel mankind will never learn is the cost and the needlessness.  Very nice tribute to those who honor their flag and homes.

I am always filled with emotion on Remembrance Day. And emotion moves me to write. Yes, "gut-wrenching" is a good description of how I have been affected by the horrors of war both past ~ and present.

Peace & Harmony,

Linda,

This is one of the most beautiful poems that I have read.  It should be reposted every year, my friend.
