Introducing our set of two poignant poems – “The Ode” by Laurence Binyon and “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae. These printable poems are a great addition to your ANZAC Day discussions and activities.
“The Ode” is a powerful tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country, and “In Flanders Fields” evokes the haunting imagery of the poppy fields in Belgium, where so many lives were lost during World War I. Both poems are timeless reminders of the sacrifices made by soldiers from Australia and New Zealand during times of war.
Use them as part of your ANZAC Day commemoration or as a starting point for discussions about the meaning of sacrifice, bravery, and patriotism. Our set of two poems is an enduring tribute to those who fought and died for our freedom, and a reminder of the lasting impact of war on our nations.
