Welsh Memories

Close your eyes if you will now
And come back with me now in time
Think if you can of the Welsh hills and valleys
As places of leisure to walk or climb
Now look above like a ghost from the past
With a darkening sky of Grey
Lancaster Bombers flying overhead
And lads from Aircrew making their way
Through Poppy Fields of Green and Red
Is it all part of a memory anew
Or even a part of a long lost dream
That perhaps we’re passing through
For over these hills in W W 2
Several planes were known to have crashed
The remains of the debris lies untouched
At the sites where into the ground they smashed
Sadly many of the crews were lost
But gladly some crews did survive
Returning to duty at their various stations
Happy to fly again and alive
Imagine if you will the noise of the engines
Flying over the crew below
Were they in fact lucky survivors of the crash
Or yet more victims of War, we may never know
The tangled mess that lies in those fields
Bedecked with a flag as a sign
That this wreckage lies as a permanent Memorial
To become an unforgettable Shrine
