Poppy Field by Kathy Clulow

 

The Eleventh Hour Of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month
 
This Remembrance Day is the 99th anniversary of the end of the First World War. It was at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 that the guns of the First World War went silent.

In remembrance of all who put themselves in Harms way so that we could,
and continue too, be able to enjoy the freedoms we enjoy today.

 

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.

 

 

Lt.-Col. John McCrae

 

Poppies By Kathy Clulow

 

Canada Remembers

Each November, we stop to remember and honour Canada's Veterans.

This year, join the conversation as Canadians from coast to coast to coast pay tribute to our heroes for their service and sacrifice.

Let's start a social media movement that tells our Veterans that #CanadaRemembers.

Good morning Kathy. This is a terrific post and I didn't know. I don't think about WWI and should. Thanks for the wake up call.
