From daily The Independent in Britain today:
Mr Corbyn will join the other party leaders to lay a wreath bearing his own message at the Cenotaph and will then attend the ceremony in Islington North.
There, he will recite “Futility” by the First World War solider poet Wilfred Owen at memorial service in his constituency.
The poem tells of a fallen soldier and concentrates on the meaning of existence, the pointlessness of war and inevitability of death.
This is what the poem says:
Move him into the sun—
Gently its touch awoke him once,
At home, whispering of fields half-sown.
Always it woke him, even in France,
Until this morning and this snow.
If anything might rouse him now
The kind old sun will know.
Think how it wakes the seeds,—
Woke, once, the clays of a cold star.
Are limbs, so dear-achieved, are sides,
Full-nerved—still warm—too hard to stir?
Was it for this the clay grew tall?
—O what made fatuous sunbeams toil
To break earth’s sleep at all?
