On the 11th of November we celebrate Remembrance Day, also known as Poppy’sย Day.

Leonard Cohen recites the poem “In Flandes Fields”…..

Here you can read the World’s Most Famous War Memorial Poem, by Lieutenant Colonel John.

“In Flandes Fields”

In Flandes 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.
