30 Days of Gratitude- Day 11

Today is remembrence Day and I am truly grateful for all the men and woman who lost their lives so that we may live in peace. Lest we Forget

These poppies are in my garden.


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.
