Remembrance Poppies November 2

Below is a wonderful poem that was read out in church and was written this year by a 14 year old boy. His name is Joshua Dyer.  

'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

(By Joshua Dyer - 2019 (aged 14)
