      Oh! you who sleep in Flanders Fields,
      Sleep sweet - to rise anew!
      We caught the torch you threw
      And holding high, we keep the Faith
      With All who died.

      We cherish, too, the poppy red
      That grows on fields where valor led;
      It seems to signal to the skies
      That blood of heroes never dies,
      But lends a lustre to the red
      Of the flower that blooms above the dead
      In Flanders Fields.

      And now the Torch and Poppy Red
      We wear in honor of our dead.
      Fear not that ye have died for naught;
      We'll teach the lesson that ye wrought
      In Flanders Fields.

          In the Trenches

          I snatched two poppies
          From the parapet's edge,
          Two bright red poppies
          That winked on the ledge.

          Behind my ear
          I stuck one through,
          One blood red poppy
          I gave to you.

          The sandbags narrowed
          And screwed out our jest,
          And tore the poppy
          You had on your breast…
          Dawn – a shell – O! Christ
          I am choked ... safe ... dust blind, I
          See trench floor poppies
          Strewn. Smashed, you lie.
