Remember our Heroes

Lest we forget

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 Flander’s 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, tho poppies grow
In Flander’s fields.

Liet. -Col. John McCrae

  1. A beautiful poem that truly remember our heroes as those who gave up themselves so all of us can have a taste of freedom and a better life. We need to always include them in our thoughts and prayers. We owe it to them and the families they left behind. Thanks for today’s inspiration.

  2. How fitting that you post this poem. All during Veteran’s Day the opening lines ran through my head. When I came here today and saw the on your blog, it made me cry. Thanks for the amazing pics and for the poem!

  8. Thank you Maggie for the poppies, the poem, and the link to the Flanders Field explanation. I have a couple of those, now a bit faded, authentic, British, paper poppies on my refrigerator door.

  9. Love the poppies, especially the first one, the black background works well. We won’t forget……
