"In Flander's Fields" A Memorial Day Tribute

"In Flander's Fields"
A Memorial Day Tribute

Poppy Watercolor by "YankeeGirlArt"



“In Flander’s Fields” is a poem dedicated to the many fallen Soldier’s during World War I.  The symbol of the “Poppy Flower” refers to the abundance of Poppy's that grew in "Flander's Fields", which is a cemetery used during World War I.   



"We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie 
In Flander's Fields."
     
     .....an excerpt from the Poem "In Flander's Fields


I had always wondered why when growing up I always saw Vet's wearing a Poppy flower in their lapel's on Memorial Day.  Many times I have received a Poppy Flower from one of these Vet's, never knowing the symbolism of it's true meaning.  I have always loved the vibrant color of the Poppy Flower, but now I have a different respect of the flower when I see a "Field of Poppy's".
