In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Amongst the crosses, row on row,
That mark our spot and in the sky
The larks, nevertheless 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 higher.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, although poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.
