Poem penned to remember war heroes
James Rose-innes, a Grade 9 learner at Union High School, penned this remarkable poem this week in honour of Poppy Day.
100 Years ago, the war was done Finished with it's awful run Creating heroes who were brave But only to be celebrated at their grave. There was great joy to the end of war But also great sadness which bore into the hearts of men Who experienced it there and then. Our condolences are poured into a poppy red,
Representing the blood that was shed. Warriors on boats, fields and in the air as well
We had to bid farewell.
I should hopefully never know the effect of war
Because of those courageous men Who fought bravely so
100 years ago.
