The Poem That Inspired Poppies Sales By The V.F.W.

Author John Mccrae

 

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 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, through poppies grow

In Flanders fields.
