Poppy - Remembrance Day

In Memory of My Father

****** 1921-2004 ******

May He Rest In Peace

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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.

~ In Flanders Fields, by John McCrae

“The Act of Remembrance”

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…

~ Laurence Binyon
