Veterans Day Poems

November 11, 2010 by USA Post 

Veterans Day Poems, Veterans Day began as Armistice Day, commemorating the end of the First World War when 11 of day 11 of month 11, 1918. This war, known at the time as the Great War, unleashed a torrent of poems are still remembered, some of which are already in our collection, Poems of War and Remembrance.

“In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae
“Iron” and “Grass” by Carl Sandburg
“Dulce et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen
“Aftermath” by Sassoon Siegfied
Armistice Day has since evolved into Veterans Day, a holiday to honor all who have served in any war and all wars in human history have inspired poets, going all the way back to the ancient Greeks, Homer’s Iliad, recalling the Trojan War. That’s why our collection of classic war poems includes poems of the eighth century China, 16-century England, and the American Civil War as well. However, for this Veterans Day, nearly 100 years after the Great War in the second decade of the 20, the first truly “modern” war, we selected a few more of the memorable poems that led to add our collection:
“Partners” and “back” Wilfrid Wilson Gibson
“The Soldier” by Rupert Brooke
“Youth Anthem lost” by Wilfred Owen
“Country at War” by Robert Graves
