  1. 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.

  2. I always wait for your Memorial Day blog! Thanks for again including the story of Taps!!! Very moving!

  3. We are actually on our way to the National Cemeteries of the Alleghenies. Too few remember.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
