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.

"In Flanders Fields"
by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, WWI, 1918

All day the guns had worked
their hellish will,
And all night long
With sobbing breath men
gasped their lives away
Or shivered restless on the ice-cold clay,
Till morn broke pale and chill
With sudden song.

Above the sterile furrows war
had ploughed
With deep-trenched seams,
Wherein this year such
bitter seed is sown,
Wherein this year no fruitful
grain is strown,
A lark poured from the cloud
Its throbbing dreams.

It sang-and pain and death
were passing shows-
So glad and strong;
Life soared triumphant,
through a myriad men
Were swept like leaves beyond
the living's ken,
That wounded hope arose
To greet that song.

"The Lark Above The Trenches"
by Muriel E Graham, WWI

Please,
This Veteran's Day and every day,
Don't forget the veterans,
The men and women who fought so bravely
In WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War,
Peacekeeping & now Afghanistan & Iraq
To protect our precious freedom!
