The Poppy Grows

Flanders-Fields-Ypres

Five score since the red blood flowed in the fields of Flanders

Where the fragile Poppy still blows.

The crimson torch passes from failing hands to firm

Reaching out to keep faith alive.

Remember the price paid, the valor displayed

In France as across the globe, the Poppy grows.
