    Lest We Forget: A Lone Pine

    A lone pine stood one cloudy day
    In a land so far away,
    And in the breeze I heard it say:
    “Lest We Forget”
    For below that pine the fallen lay
    Gallant sons to always stay,
    In our hearts and the words we pray;
    “Lest We Forget”
    From the pine and beyond the bay
    A seedling in soils of clay,
    Grow the hope that come-what-may:
    “Lest We Forget”
    Above the clouds there shone a ray
    To cast aside skies of grey,
    As a nation vowed ever would they:
    “Lest We Forget”
    A Lone Pine stood one sunny day
    In a land so far away,
    And in the breeze I heard it say:
    “Lest We Forget”
