Year 6 Remembrance Poems

What poignant and brilliant poems our Year 6 pupils wrote last week!

'Once Again' by Scarlett

Once again I am called to war,
told to put my life on the line,
made to leave my loved ones,
forced away to the trenches,
Once again.

Once again fear fills me,
anxiety brings doubt,
I worry for my future,
for if ever again I will feel
the spring breeze on my skin,
the cold winter chill,
Once again.

Once again I will hear bullets,
the bombs obliterating the soil,
the people screaming in pain,
the German soldiers laughing,
Once again.

Once again I will have to try to
kill many people, who may not
want to kill me.
