Two Poems by Joan Adams Burchell (copyright)
We Will Remember
Blood was shed on fields and shore,
in the air and on the sea.
Men - just boys - gave up their
so our country could be free.
We honour them, and their gift
on the eleventh day of November.
Memories go beyond the grave
so we will always remember.
The Price For Freedom
The eleventh month is named "November";
The eleventh day we will always
The great world war had come to
The men who survived, we prayed,
The scars went deep but they fought
The men of bravery hid it well.
The memories showed behind their
The horror of watching while a
The price for freedom was paid
Could live our lives unafraid,
Our country is proud of the women
Who knew the importance of freedom,
The years have passed but on the
eleventh of November
We salute those who fought and
we will always remember.
