They've won a great though costly fight,
So the morning papers say,
No lists of men are posted yet,
Lost in the distant fray.

But word will cross the Channel Gray,
To country town and city too,
And sad the hearts who find loved names,
Of kin who's life is through.

It's winter now, the bleak and cold,
Every nich so dark and gray,
But spring will come with crocus bloom,
At home and far away.

Ian Adrian Millar

For those who did not come home, who made the supreme sacrifice on land, in the air, and upon the seas.
