A thousand men

Powerful.. Joshua Dyer (aged 14) was tasked at school to write a poem for Remembrance Day. An hour later (without any help) he produced this..

ONE THOUSAND MEN ARE WALKING One thousand men are walking Walking side by side Singing songs from home The spirit as their guide

They walk toward the light milord, they walk towards the sun they smoke and laugh and smile together no foes to outrun.

These men live on forever in the hearts of those they saved a nation truly grateful for the path of peace they paved.

They march as friends and comrades but they do not march for war step closer to salvation a tranquil steady corps the meadows lit with golden beams a beacon for the brave the emerald grass untrampled a reward for what they gave.

They dream of those they left behind and know they dream of them forever in those poppy fields there walks one thousand men Joshua Dyer 2019 (aged 14)
