In Flanders Fields  by John McCrae, May 1915        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.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields by John McCrae, May 1915 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.

IF I should die, think only this of me; That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England. There shall be In that rich earth a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware, Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam... In hearts at peace, under an English heaven. -Rupert Brooke
