Remembrance Day

By November 10, 2015Parkland Players

Tomorrow is Remembrance Day. To pay respect to those who have served and continue to serve in war today we are posting the poem In Flander’s Fields. It was written by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae who was a Canadian physician in the first World War.

Here are 3 verses of the 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.
