Cenotaph

The Salford Crescent Cenotaph : Created by Inky from Stock Photo.

Salford 10th November 2019

Carved into hewn stone

each name mentioned someone who never came home

now remembered for their actions

on those fateful campaigns

the list of names shines in the sun

as the sun shines on each of their names

poppies resting at the foot of the memorial as

held silence is observed, in respectful remembrance
