Remembrance Day Remembered

For the sake of those we never knew
We trooped into the hall
Where their names in golden letters
Were written on the wall.

Somebody sounded a bugle
And ghosts seemed everywhere
Until the last note softly fell
On the suddenly empty air.

Then the world filled up with the living
In its own accustomed way,
With the usual busy traffic
Of the usual busy day.

But, what I most remember
And know that I always will
Is how we stood utterly silent
And absolutely still.
