Maggie (aka Peggy) Gosling’s “Memories” – the original was handwritten and decorated by a hand drawn poppy.

I miss my family

I miss my friends

I miss my home

And the beach where the road ends


And if I go

And lose my life

And if I fall

I’ll remember the strife


We soldiers will remember

We generals will remember

We nurses will remember

Our last member


A poppy is a symbol

A poppy is a flower

A poppy is the happiness

That came after a fight for power


Peggy's poem was judged joint "best of the best" out of the five schools who entered our competition.
