MEMORIAL DAY POEM “IN FLANDERS FIELDS”

I had to find a poem that would allow me to go back to so many Heroes we lost. It is so important to remember that someone risk they life for my life. So I decided to put away my barbecue and my celebration that I was going to do and focus on the forgotten heroes that I want to remember always and not just on Memorial day but everyday. To know some of our fallen heroes now reside in United States Of America soil that they fought so hard for. So here is this poem that capture what Memorial day truly should mean to all of us. God Bless all of our Solders for they are our true Heroes.

“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.
