Remembrance II

#remembrance #memorial #armistice #war

War Memorial, Lancashire Fusiliers, Salford

They gathered in the square

about the stone pillar

their number there

to remember those

who sleep on foreign battlegrounds

names etched with care – on pillars

while keeping watch – a soldier or lion

and as time hits the hour

the silence fills the air

as respect to the fallen is taken

and wreaths of remembrance are laid
