The Ode of Remembrance, which incorporates Laurence Binyon's poem ‘For the Fallen’, has become an important part of most Remembrance ceremonies. Binyon's poem was first published in The Times in 1914, not long after the start of the war. Perhaps it is because of this that the poem lacks the cynicism that was common in the work of later war poets. Nonetheless, it is a poem that manages to capture the feeling of respectful melancholy that we often have when remembering those who have been lost to war.
