4 mei

Vandaag is het vier mei, dodenherdenking. Een moment om bij stil te staan, bij alle gevallenen, burgers en militarien - die zijn omgekomen sinds het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog, in oorlogssituaties en bij vredesmissies. We will remember them...

Onderstaande tekst betreft een toepasselijke songtekst van Mark Knopfler.

On your maypole green

See the winding morrismen
Angry Alfie, Bill and Ken
Waving hankies, sticks and books
All the earthen roots

Standing at the crease
The batsman takes a look around
The boys are fielding on homeground
The steeple sharp against the blue
When I think of you

Sam and Andy
Jack and John
Charlie, Martin
Jamie, Ron
Harry, Stephen
Will and Don
Matthew, Michael

On and on

We will remember them
Remember them
Remember them

We will remember them

Remember them
Remember them

Time has slipped away

The Summer sky to Autumn yields
A haze of smoke across the fields
Let’s sup and fight another round
And walk the stubbled ground

When November brings
The poppies on Remembrance Day
When the vicar comes to say
May God bless them every one
Lest we forget our sons

We will remember them
Remember them
Remember them

We will remember them
Remember them
Remember them

We will remember them
Remember them
Remember them

We will remember them
Remember them
Remember them
