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
