  1. Remember the people who went to war to save our country,
    Everyone appreciated them in their planes,
    My mother was emotional that dad went to war and got killed in a plane battle,
    Everyone might feel upset that one of their family went to war,
    Many people died in the First World War and some families were upset ,
    Beautiful Poppies grow in Flanders fields that are still growing today,
    Each year we wear a poppy to remember the people who went to war ,
    Remember remember the 11th of November.

  2. Poppies blown in Flanders Fields and many more,
    Old and young were taken down,
    People remember the fallen by wearing a poppy,
    Proud soldiers fought for their friends and family,
    Yearly we remember on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, on the eleventh hour.
    By William

  3. By Joseph S

    The war started and every one darted,
    They sent out soldiers and that was very wise they told us,
    The men made trenches which is like a den,
    They saw fire but there was no desire.

    The brave men that went out to war and fire they only saw,
    Bombs was flung but the war wasn’t done,
    People lined up for war and destruction they saw,
    They went to sleep at night hoping in the morning they would see daylight.

    When they saw daylight they had to dress in there uniforms nice and tight,
    They would of hade flees which coursed disease,
    They had to walk mud as thick as blood,
    They herd guns so people died tons and tons.

    People on the floor and in the clouds they opened the door,
    We hoped and prayed they would be safe to be here another day but in there graves they lay,
    Then the war ended and the world blended.

  4. When war started they had to go,
    Only some of them survived,
    Rapidly dying everywhere,
    Lonely ones praying for this to end,
    Dead bodies lying there all around.

    Where they in pain?
    Are they dead now?
    Really upset no smiles again.

    One day we shall see their face in heaven,
    No one should forget you,
    Every one should wear a poppy to remember.

    By Kasey

  5. Remember the hard fighting men that went to war for us,
    Even though some of the died they died for our country,
    Mines, bombs and guns they used in the war,
    Every day I come to your graves,
    Memorials that have your names,
    Because now you’ve left this land,
    Remember letting go of your hand,
    And as that I’m still thinking of you,
    Now you lie down in the sky,
    Certainly this time of year we are all thinking of you,
    Every one knows you’re not dead just exploring somewhere new.

    By Jay

  6. War ended and we pray,
    May I ask you a question as it is Remembrance Day,
    Soldier soldier may I sit down near your grave,
    It says that you were very brave,
    My great great great uncle was there.
    And I knew what they had to wear,
    I like wearing a poppy to remember you,
    Now the sky is very blue.

    I’m very sad that you’re gone,
    Now I’m upset because I didn’t see you for very long
    Many people died,
    Luckily some survived,
    Remember it’s the day to celebrate the 100th year,
    There is always a tear because I know you’re near,
    So that’s why we remember on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month.

    By Megan

  7. Well done to the courageous soldiers that fought for us,
    Old and young they still died,
    Remember the soldiers who were very brave,
    Love the men that gave their today for our tomorrow,
    Do respect the men who lay down in their grave,

    War ended 1918 on the 11th of the 11th of the 11th,
    All the men are remembered by a poppy that grew in Flanders Field,
    Represent those who died by one poppy in place,

    Only some came home from the war,
    Not everyone survived instead they died,
    Everyone wears a poppy to remember those who sacrificed their lives for us.

    By Evie

  10. First the world war started fire fire the guns went BOOM as people fell to the ground,
    I will always remember your face even though your fighting,
    Ready to fight,
    Started fighting,
    Terrible things happened,

    Worried as people died,
    Objects are out,
    Rolling barrels coming down the hills,
    Leaping over hedgers,
    Died in the war over 13 million got injured,

    War stopped as loads of people fell to the ground,
    Are people still alive now?,
    Remember remember the 11 of November.

  16. For all the soldiers that gave their lives,
    Live until I go to hide in heaven,
    Always stay until I leave this place,
    Never forget me when I die,
    Death is never what I want,
    Every man and boy that did die,
    Rest in peace until you come back to see me again,
    See me now in this place that you made great.

    First a boom then a lot,
    In the war you gave us lots,
    Everyone who did not survive ,
    Leading the march to heaven in the world above,
    Death is when your new life begins.

  18. Soldiers bleeding on the ground,
    Bombs being thrown in the dull black sky,
    Guns going bang,
    Planes dropping missiles to the floor,
    Soldiers hiding In those dirty trenches away from harm,
    Gun shots around every corner,
    Every time you heard a gun shot you would know,
    A soldier died.

    Suddenly, poppies appeared in battle fields,
    Wear a poppy after all those,
    Who went to war and not many returned,
    So please wear a poppy to show RESPECT,
    For those who gave their lives for the country in the war,
    Over 11 million solders died at war.

    Number of people who past away in the war,
    Children have been told about stories in the war,
    Every time we wear a poppy to say thank you.
