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.
