Lest we forget


                           
     My thirteen-year-old grandson has just written  this. It says it all.

  1. Excellent. I assume he knows that it wasn't voluntary although one could volunteer.

  2. It would be great if no one ever had to go to war again.

  3. What a wonderful poem. I hope it is to be published somewhere. Have you been teaching him to write so beautifully?

    1. Frances, it had nothing to do with me. It was his homework - apparently the work of 15 minutes. I hope he keeps it up.

  4. That's a remarkably perceptive poem. I'm not sure that I could have looked at war like that when I was 13.

    1. Graham, I expect they had been "doing" war at school, hence this as homework. But for a boy who is supposed only to be interested in maths and football, I think it's pretty impressive!
