THE ODE PLUS

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old,
age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn,
but at the going down of the Sun
and in the morning,
We will remember them
Lest we forget

Neither we forget,
their comrades in arms,
and the enduring sacrifice,
of the injured, wounded, maimed,
endowed to suffer, whole-of-life,
right until life’s end
Equally too, we remember them.
Lest we forget
