Lest We Forget

Today is Anzac Day  :

Poppies from a German Daughter

On Remembrance Day
I buy three red poppies:
One for the blood of my German father 
that reddened the ruins of Monte Cassino
One for the drops of sweat and youth 
left trailing on the Kokoda 
by my Australian husband
One for the Unknown Soldier.

And then, lets not forget the present either....
