I was gifted these beautiful fabric poppies. November came around and it was clear what had to be done.
They shall grow not old, as we who are left grow old.
Such haunting words, whose undeniable truth brings forth tears.
We remember a hundred and more years since the ‘great’ war.
Not the first and not the last.
Year in and year out.
Respects paid, tributes laid.
“Lest we forget” written and spoken over and over.
And yet what do we really learn?
‘Lest we forget’ seems so easily forgotten.
