: In Flanders Fields
: ------------------
: 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.

: (John McCrae)

: Reply to Flanders Fields
: ------------------------
: Oh! sleep in peace where poppies grow;
: The torch your falling hands let go
: Was caught by us, again held high,
: A beacon light in Flanders sky
: That dims the stars to those below.
: You are our dead, you held the foe,
: And ere the poppies cease to blow,
: We'll prove our faith in you who lie
: In Flanders Fields.
: Oh! rest in peace, we quickly go
: To you who bravely died, and know
: In other fields was heard the cry,
: For freedom's cause, of you who lie,
: So still asleep where poppies grow,
: In Flanders Fields.

: As in rumbling sound, to and fro,
: The lightning flashes, sky aglow,
: The mighty hosts appear, and high
: Above the din of battle cry,
: Scarce heard amidst the guns below,
: Are fearless hearts who fight the foe,
: And guard the place where poppies grow.
: Oh! sleep in peace, all you who lie
: In Flanders Fields.

: And still the poppies gently blow,
: Between the crosses, row on row.
: The larks, still bravely soaring high,
: Are singing now their lullaby
: To you who sleep where poppies grow
: In Flanders Fields.

: (John Mitchell)
