"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them."

This is arguably one of the most famous poems in English literature, written by Laurence Binyon, and recited up and down the country in churches, meeting places - even the Royal Albert Hall.  And he has a WikiTree profile!

I thought "All in all, we're just another brick in the wall".... was the most famous poem!   :D
Oh, Vincent. No pudding for you! :-)
