A poem to encourage children to take some time out to think and share…
Take a moment, stop and think
of 100 years before,
all was topsy turvy
for the world had gone to war.
Life meant something different
as the bombs came raining down,
hopes and dreams; frozen, stuck, entombed
in Flanders blooded ground.
In the years that followed
wars kept knocking on the door,
and as this poem’s written
terror lingers, frightens, storms.
So why not…
– fight a different war,
– free those hopes and dreams,
– lift them from the place they fell,
released through poetry?
So get a pen on paper,
tell of all you wish to see,
of the world that you are part of,
of the world that’s yet to be.
In you their hopes fly high, fly new
fly brighter than before,
so take a moment, stop and think
Of 100 years before.
