Remembrance Day

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

I just wanted to let you know that I shall not be posting or up-dating any of my pages on my website until at least Tuesday next week and with that in mind I would like to leave you with a poem which was written in 1918 and inspired by the poem 'In Flanders Fields'.  We shall remember them!

We Shall Keep the Faith
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 valour 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 honour of our dead.
Fear not that ye have died for naught;
We'll teach the lesson that ye wrought
In Flanders Fields.
by Moina Michael



Until next time

Take care

Heather
