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.



Notes by Andrew Guild:
The Ode of Remembrance is read out at many ceremonies across Australia on Anzac Day (25 April) and Remembrance Day (11 November). The Ode is taken from the poem “For the Fallen”, written by English poet Laurence Binyon (1869-1943).
