In Flanders Fields

Today is ANZAC day (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) and is a celebration of the date that the troops landed in Turkey to participate in World War I. The brave men and women who gave their lives in the struggle for freedom are remembered…

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in sky
The larks, still barely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead.  Short days ago
We lived, fell down, 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~
