Samantha, Age 11, Vernon, BC

At the graves of men who died
Poppies grow along the side.
They grow in straight rows of ten
Planted there by the women:
Sisters, daughters and the wives
Of the men who lost their lives.
Lots of men survived the war
But those who died were many more.
Those who fought and died for us
Gave their lives without a fuss,
Fought for freedom, peace and joy.
We must work hard not to destroy
All the things that we did gain
From those soldiers and their pain
We wear poppies to symbolize
All the men who lost their lives.
