    WE WILL REMEMBER THEM - REMEMBRANCE DAY TODAY

    IN FLANDERS FIELDS POEM
    The World’s Most Famous WAR MEMORIAL POEM
    By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

    Lieutenant Colonel John McCraeIn 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

    Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
    during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium

    Thank you ALL for your service.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
