Default Re: Lest we not forget

Didn't plan far enough ahead to bring a poppy with me, and don't know where to get one here. I also knew that a minute's silence just wasn't going to happen at work, so I took myself outside and sat by the water for a moment of reflection.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them.

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.
