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.

Ode of Remembrance, part of the poem For the Fallen, by Laurence Binyon, 1914.

  1. What a poignant moment you captured. I visited the poppy display at the Tower of London last year and it was an extremely moving experience. It is good that the anniversaries of these sacrifices are being so beautifully remembered across the world. ‘Lest we forget.’

    • Thanks. I would love to have seen the poppies at the Tower. Photos I saw were just amazing. These fields of remembrance have appeared all over NZ – from little towns to the main cities. I spent a while over the last couple of days watching people interact with the Auckland field — very moving. Cheers, Su.
