AN ANZAC TRIBUTE

 

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

Lest we forget

Joshua Dyer (aged 14) was tasked at school to write a poem for Remembrance Day.

An hour later (without any help) he produced this.
