Ode of Remembrance

Fourth and last verse of this wonderful poem which is recited at various places on Anzac (Australian & New Zealand Army Corp) Day, 25th April.  It is also said as the sun goes down in our RSL Clubs.  All patrons are expected to stand and face the west

"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.
Lest we forget"
And today, well its 30C/86F!!!!!
Have a great weekend - a very long weekend for Aussies - 3 days off.

  6. Hi Maria,
    Just stopping by to say hi
    and asking what you up to!
    Still having a bit of trouble with the computer.
    Firewall keeps stopping me commenting on others at times. What ever that is!
    Hugs to you Suex
