Lest we forget

In Flanders Fields
By Lt. Colonel John McCrae, MD
(1872-1918), Canadian Army (bio)

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 (words: Lt. Colonel John McCrae, music: Paul A. Aitken)
Performed by The Renaissance Singers - (Recorded live on 02/Nov/2002)

Dedicated to The Royal Canadian Legion and all the War Veterans, especially those I know.


  1. Que musica tan bella!

    El poema me agrada mucho.
    Es importante mencionar estos temas y fechas historicas.


    Es posible que ma&ana recibas dos o tres lectores provenientes de ¿Cómo es CANADA?

  2. Gracias, Arturo. Ya tengo unos cuantos lectores que han provenido de tu blog, como Tulip, por ejemplo.

    Coincido contigo, estas cosas hay que recordarlas siempre.
