The World’s Most Fa­mous WAR MEMO­RIAL POEM By Lieu­tenant Colonel John McCrae 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

Com­posed at the bat­tle­front on May 3, 1915 dur­ing the sec­ond bat­tle of Ypres, Bel­gium
