Remembrance Day, 2021
Thursday November 11, 2021 is Remembrance Day.
For The Fallen by Laurence Binyon
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe. (9–12)
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. (13–16)
