Remembrance Day 2013






Poppies from a German daughter














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

and

One

for the Unknown Soldier






   








...But O for the touch of a vanished hand,
and the sound of a voice that is still...
(Tennyson)
