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.

(Harmonization)

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,

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,

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
in Flanders Fields

in Flanders…
in Flanders Fields
in Flanders Fields
in Flanders Fields
in Flanders Fields

Thank you to all of you,  the men and women who had the audacity to sign up for the unthinkable!

P.S. Louise Meek, Doc’s mother, memorized IN FLANDERS FIELDS when she was in Grade 6. Today, in her 95th year, she recited it from memory,  with feeling. Nothing the matter with her long-term memory, even though she has some issues with short-term memory. So… remember to memorize good things while you are young!
