: In Flanders Field
: By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
: Canadian Army

: 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.


Dayum, Bea!! You stole my 'thought' for tomorrow!! Great minds think alike I guess!! Tis okay though, there is a poem response to this that would be that will be my thought instead.
