Their Flag was Furled, and mute their drum - Sir Walter Scott

Response to "In Flanders’ Fields"

In Flanders’ fields the conflict grew
The din the noise the cannons threw
Havoc let loose rages around
The death denouncing trumpet sound

The combat deepens on the brave
With rush to glory or the grave
Blood stains the earth where you lie
Blood-red the poppy blooms
In Flanders’s Fields

We have a promise we need to keep
To all in Flanders who lie asleep
We take the torch the poppy red
And wear in honour of our dead!

Have we learned the lessons taught?
For those who died was not for naught
In Flanders Field

We certainly do have a promise we need to keep, and I posted a Poppy piece, too.

Bringing back to life the memories that we sometimes push aside, yet a part of history it will always remain. Our mistake, misfortune is in the forgetting...

Be always safe,

I will proudly "take the torch" for my father's forefathers. Powerful tribute, Beryl.

Sadly, it is clear that we have learned little or not a thing, Beryl. Thank you for sharing this apt and timely message. Love and peace to you,
