Lest We Forget

In honor of all those who gave their lives for the savagery of war:

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
