Poems for use in Remembrance Day ceremonies

 

The Ode of Remembrance
From For the Fallen, by Laurence Binyon

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
 
(When these words are read out as part of a ceremony, the group of people present repeat the last line, "We will remember them".)
