Prompt for this week:  “Remembrance”… I have chosen this prompt since Remembrance Day, Sunday, November 11, 2018, will be remembered in many countries this week.

Posted below are a few things to inspire you this week:   “Remembrance”

poppy

In Canada as well as in many other countries we honour Remembrance Day on November 11.

In Flanders Field by John McCrae, May 1915

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.

 

Blessings for a good week.  Hélène
