Remembrance Sunday

Today is Remembrance Sunday in the UK

(Notice that UK poppies are different than the ones we wear here in the US)


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.

What a great post on Remembrance Day. I also really enjoyed the post yesterday about the square teapots. I'd love to try one as I can't see how you can pour without lots of drips!

I always enjoy your blog and have nominated it in my post today for the Kreative Blogger award. Cheers! Leah
