Poetry of Remembrance : Marina Scott

Marina Scott of Whittington Vic has sent along a number of poems as her contribution to our wonderful little project.  I will post all of the poems in the dedication section of the blog for you to view.  Thank you Marina for sharing your wonderful poetry with our group.  Poignant and heartfelt …

Peace Has Come

peace has come

where there was strife,

where there was death,

the land has life.

there was a war,

and now there’s peace.

peace has come

to those who lie

in foreign graves

or where they die,

there was a war

and now there’s peace.

peace has come

to those who marched,

and peace has come

to those who watched

them off to war,

yes, now there’s peace.

and when there’s peace

for shattered mind

that cannot leave

the past behind,

then for all pain,

there shall be peace.

then strife shall be

a memory,

and we can say

on Anzac day,

there once was war,

and now there’s peace

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.
