In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae

 

In Flander’s 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 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
