Act of Remembrance

             Acte du Souvenir

They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not worry them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them.
             Ils ne vieilliront pas
comme nous, qui leur avons survécu.
Ils ne connaîtront jamais
l'outrage ni le poids des années.
Quand viendra l'heure du crépuscule
et celle de l'aurore,
nous nous souviendrons d'eux.

Carol Walsh / November 17, 2014
