In The Fields The Poppys Grow

In The Fields The Poppys Grow

While hiking towards Tierra del Rio May 26 2016
simple and lovely. Thanks for sharing this great capture. I'm now 90 days out from a return and can hardly stand it. I'm so, so ready
The title remembers me of a Canadian Poem.

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.
@Koidream Thanks Koi, I love this poem (more an Ode). It was written by a Canadian Doctor in 1916 (I think) whilst attending to wounded soldiers. He was himself killed not long after the poem was published.
