Remembrance Day 2016

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.
Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915 
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium

  1. Wonderful poem, truly brilliant. I especially love the second stanza, and at first it might not seem deep but it actually is. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. These puppies are looking so cute. I liked this couple and i can see their romance in the pictures and emotions on their face. Its very fun to see them.
