From my collection of Pitcairn Island one of my favourite remembrance miniature sheets
issued for WWI commemoration.
No great triumphal march For lads like you; No pasteboard victory arch, No grand review. In working raiment brown You gave your best; Then laid you weary down, And took your rest. But the great kindly earth, That hid your face, Gave all your triumph birth Beside your resting-place. The poppy armies blaze Red in the holy loam, And the lark's music plays The victors home.
