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, a Canadian medical officer, witnessing the carnage of World War I, 1915. An American woman, Moina Michael replies: "We cherish too, the poppy red, That grows on fields where valor led, It seems to signal to the skies, that blood of heros never dies"
"Our wars have won for us every hour we live in freedom."
