We Mourn Them Here -
Our Dreaming Dead.
In This Quiet Hallowed Place
To Heroes Dedicate.
As Once They Loved All This-
Warm Sands - Sea Breeze,
Tall Trees And Distant Hills,
The Magpies Glory In The Early Morn -
We Chose This Spot.
We Took Our Memories And Placed Them Here,
And Planted Trees , Like Memories Evergreen
To Thrive And Grow
More Cherished With The Years.
Speak Quietly Here - Tread Soft.
The Men Who Loved These Sands Dream On.
The Blessed Peace For Which They Fought Is Theirs
In This Tree - Ringed, Green Lovely Spot.
