In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields, the poppies grow between the crosses, row on row, that mark our places; and in the sky the larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amongst 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 your 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.

Dr John McCrae, 1914/1915
