In memory of Pop, my great-grandfather, and to everyone who has fought for our country.

the poppies blow
across the graves
beneath the crosses
in france.

some remember
and some don’t – 
why they’re there.
i do.

i do
for not all are there, in France
some came back
they loved and lived
brought life to a world
once again liveable

i do for i
remember the lines
around your eyes
you in khaki, black and white
boyish grin
i remember your love
for this land you fought for.

the grass, it blows
across your grave
beneath the love
of our hearts.

Corporal Robert Richard Hall
Fought in WWII
