In Flanders Field …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--FLANDERS FIELD

It’s been 100 years since John McCrae, a doctor and soldier born in Guelph, wrote In Flanders Fields. Inspired by the death of his comrade a day earlier, he is thought to have composed the piece in the back of an ambulance after a battle in Belgium. Though he initially discarded his work, another soldier found and published what would become one of Canada’s most iconic poems.

Remembrance …

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
