In Flanders Fields


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 was a poet, physician (surgeon), author and serving soldier during World War I.. On May 3, 1915 he composed the poem Flanders Field ,while setting in the back of a medical ambulance after the death and funeral of a close friend.  HIs friend was buried in the field with a simple white cross and  hundreds of red poppies blooming.
The red poppy has become an international symbol of Memorial Day.
