Remembrance Week - A Visit to Hampden Park War Memorial




Slowly flows the stream
Trickling past the shrine
Names etched in granite
From a bygone time.

Without a second glance
People wander by
Just a list of soldiers
From a bygone time.

Richard Fry
William Irons
Henry Smith
Mark Stevens

Each name tells a story
Of sacrifice and dreams
Shadows of the past
From a bygone time.

Take a minute to stop
And read the names
For our tomorrow
They gave their today.
