We who are left...

The 'clay poppies', one for every fallen soldier of the Great War, surrounding the Tower of London. 5th November, 2014.

We who are left, how shall we look again
Happily on the sun, or feel the rain,
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly, and spent
Their all for us, loved, too, the sun and rain?

 from 'Lament' - Wilfrid Wilson Gibson (1878-1962).
