Letters: Remembrance Day poem


The Parade Ground Beneath Our Feet


They march no more

Their paces stilled by death

Where once they fought for might and right

They fought for liberty

They now are still – Our legacy

They march no more.


We meet to honour those who gave their lives so we could live

We who never shared the horrors that war will give

We who live free because they died

We dare not leave their deeds denied

To do so would desecrate their memory

And leave us with no history

To strive for peace and nevermore

To repeat the futile act of global war


As we see the crosses neatly in their rows

Let’s assemble once again to remember those

Who once had so much hope

No more to live and love, to sleep and eat

Their marching stilled as they lie

In the parade ground beneath our feet.


They march no more.


Fred Dalkeith, Aldergrove
