Remembrance Day Poem
A Remembrance Day 1999 Project
by the New Horizons School Grades 4/5 Class

The Grades 4/5 Class teacher told a moving story about her Grandfather who was seriously wounded at Vimy Ridge. The students were encouraged to write a poem or letter about Remembrance Day. Some of the students chose to write a letter home to their parents, as if they were soldiers fighting on the front, while others chose to write poems about Remembrance Day.

        Flanders Field
        By Chelsa

        In Flanders Field
        Where poppies grow
        The soldiers that died
        lay still.

        They died for us
        For love
        and peace.
        The thought is sad.

        But still,
        we got to
        remember them
        By wearing a bright red Poppy.

        Poppies cover the graves
        Like a thick coloured blanket
        We really have to thank them
        Because they died for us.
