FOR THE FALLEN

by Laurence Binyon

….

Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal

Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.

There is music in the midst of desolation

And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle, they were
young.

Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.

They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted:

They fell with their faces to the foe.

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…
