Remembrance Day 11/11 2014

I realize many of you likely know this poem but I thought I’d post it along with a photo that says so much.

This poem was written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, the day after witnessing the death of his friend on the battlefields of World War 1.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses row on row

That mark our place, and in the sky

The larks still bravely singing fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below

 

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived felt dawn,  saw sunset glow

Loved and were loved and now we lie

In Flanders Fields

 

Take up our quarrel with the foe

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

in Flanders fields
