I was recently honoured to perform with the great Aziz, to a wonderful piece of music that he had composed
To commemorate the poppy display at the
Imperial War Museum North
A single poppy
That we tightly clutch
Small but significant
Stands for so much
Remember the numbers
Who went unsung
For the loss of too many
Too many too young
Who fought for their country
The horrors they saw
The wasting of life
The futility of war
So look at the art
A ceramic landscape
Respecting a nation
A crimson cascade
A river of flowers
Reminder of some
Of our darkest hours
So reflect and consider
And think as you gaze
And pray to your God
It’s the end of those days

I recently visited the Imperial War Museum North, where the famous 'Tower of London' poppy display is now located. There is a very moving film and incredible poem by the great Tony Walsh (longfella). I can't recommend it highly enough. GO !
