Remembrance

A Poem by Pamela Jackson

REMEMBRANCE... the action  of Remembering, of Recollection

Salute to Our Veterans,  in a sold-out concert hall,

the 7th Annual Remembrance Day Concert,

the Sidney Concert Band gave it their all.

A salute to the hundreds of thousands,

who fought, only to fall.

 

One hundred years have passed since Passchendaele or Ypres,

and Amiens where a show of strength caused Germans to run.

Canadians, one of the strongest armies on the western front,

fighting to end it, once and for all, with the fearsome Hun.

 

So share the war music, the Last Post, Amazing Grace,

while we remember those now in a special place.

So many eager men, some only young boys,

craving the excitement, the noise.

Not for a moment thoughts of blood, death. Only the race.

 

From Vimy Ridge to Flanders Field,

Canadian soldiers would not yield.

The Sidney Concert Band honoured with pride,

great music and a few tears,

the solemn remembrance of one hundred years.
