The Plaque-UNVEILED BY/PROVOST MIKE O'MALLEY/TO MARK THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY/OF THE BATTLE OF EL ALAMEIN/26TH OCTOBER 2002; The Poem on the plinth-Tunes and Flowers/One metre plus twelve years, the gap between/a spider and a girl, both cast in bronze./He stands suspicious, tired of the business/of wars. She offers thanks as best she can/a rose picked from the bunch tucked under her arm.//Silent bagpipes drop from his crooked arm; /their lung exhausted by battle refrains./His look extends beyond her outstretched hand/towards the lasting bloom within her eyes,/which gaze past gratitude into a world/where she will shine. Their gap is closing fast.//both know that liberation bears a price/beyond the measure of tunes and flowers./Andrew McGeeven.
