In Flanders Fields remembrance

Today is one of the most special day for poets because one of the best-known poems written by Lt. Col John McCrae during World War 1. This poem is a favorite of mind and one I like so much. It brings a tear to my eyes just reading it because it reminds me of all the battles that were fought on this planet in the name of humanity. It is why many people call this poem one of the best poems on this planet.

Therefore, here is the poem

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.

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
