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.

        Why we have Remembrance Day
        is to remember the soldiers
        who fought for us.

        Poppies grow on their graves in Flanders Fields,
        to remind us that they died for us
        and gave their lives away.

        A lot of boys went to fight,
        but didn't come back on flight.

        That's why on the eleventh of November
        we sit down in silence to remember.
