What Is The Ode of Remembrance?
This traditional Anzac Day poem is the fourth stanza of the longer poem For the Fallen, written by British writer Laurence Binyon during World War One. Here are the words of this particular section:
They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning,
We will remember them.
