In Flanders Fields... by Jenna-Rose In Flanders Fields... by Jenna-Rose
In Flanders Fields the Poppies Blow
- full view for details -


Just something simple for Remembrance Day, inspired by the poems "In Flanders Fields" and "We Shall Keep the Faith".

Remember our Veterans...
Support our Troops...
Freedom isn't Free.

Remembrance Day 2009, November 11th

In Flanders Fields
- by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
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.

& and a response:

We Shall Keep the Faith
- by Moina Michael
Oh! you who sleep in Flanders Fields,
Sleep sweet - to rise anew!
We caught the torch you threw
And holding high, we keep the Faith
With All who died.
We cherish, too, the poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led;
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies,
But lends a lustre to the red
Of the flower that blooms above the dead
In Flanders Fields.
And now the Torch and Poppy Red
We wear in honor of our dead.
Fear not that ye have died for naught;
We'll teach the lesson that ye wrought
In Flanders Fields.

I come from Flanders, and I've been to the graves many times. In school, this poem is one that we all learn. I think that, when you red this poem and I mean truly read it, you can still call up the feelings those soldiers once had. If you go to the many places where you have the graves, you will likely find poppies there.

Now I once again see the reason why I know this poem by heart...
