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 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, May 1915

Beautiful photo and the poem is a good reminder to honor those who came before.

What an adorable grandkid! He's got beautiful eyes...just wait till all those teenage girls see those, in a few years!

Thank you for posting Lest We Forget. It was required learning in school, and I can still recite it. It's really all a part of Remembrance Day for me.

Love the poppies...I'd love a field of those. How charming that would be!
