    Two minutes silence marks your death
    as we the nation remember
    your sacrifice, with respect.
    The silence echoes our private grief
    while we the nation mourn our heroes.

    Heroes, born to die in far away places
    in battles old and new.
    Haunting bugles lament your loss
    while the Big Guns, salute you.
    And we the nation remember
    as we find solace in our thoughts.

    I wrote this poem for my grandchildren

    With the herald of spring the bugs start to arrive
    in my Garden of Eden for the “Ugly Bug Jive”.

    The weird and the ugly they give me the jitters
    who may I ask created these critters?

    There are black bugs and green bugs and stripy ones too
    perhaps they’ve escaped from the Ugly Bug zoo?

    Grass hoppers and spiders arrive at my door
    the Jive’s in full swing so they take to the floor. ...
