featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
Imagine a line of soldiers marching from the distance and passing by. This march would be perfect for Remembrance Day programs or any event concerning themes of war and peace. Donna wrote it for her high school choir. Community choirs will love it too.

LYRICS

And the poppies grow
between the rows
where the soldiers laid down their souls
and the ground is cold
and I’m feeling so old
with these flowers I gently hold

The wind, it starts to haunt me
with tales of long ago.
The brave ones who left their families,
they were much too far from home.

chorus

The young are asking questions
of war throughout the lands.
If only they would listen,
our world might stand a chance.
