Yesterday I read an article about the 11 Canadian War Heroes we Canadians should never forget and was gobsmacked at the omission of John McCrea. So because he should never be forgotten I have taken some pictures of our local Carleton Place windows—and please play the video while viewing.
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.
