Thank you Glenise Karanikich for this really moving poem.  It seems so fitting that we share it with the group on Remembrance Day.


For all those who went to war – We Remember You!

For all those who went to war – Blessed Souls We Remember You!

A Grand Father I new knew – My Heart Remembers You!

My Dad who went and came home again – I Remember You!

For all who fought the fight for our Country’s plight

We Thank You!

About 5000 Poppies

The 5000 Poppies Project is a community tribute of respect and remembrance for our servicemen and women, their families and their communities. Created in 2013 by sisters in law Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight in honour of their fathers service in WWII, the project has been closely aligned with the Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018, and has consisted of a number of small and large scale installations made from handcrafted poppies from many thousands of contributors from all over the world.

    What a wonderful poem Glenise and what a great idea to read it out on Remembrance day in Fed Square. I would so much like to be there, but I can’t.
    Thanks for the poem Glenise.
    All the best
