Neil Gendzwill Posted November 11, 2005 Report Share Posted November 11, 2005 They shall grow not old as we That are left grow old; Age shall not weary them nor The years condemn. At the going down of the sun And in the morning, We will remember them. Take a moment this day and thank a veteran, if only in your heart. Neil 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. - John McCrae Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
