In Flanders Fields
Words by Dr. John McCrae

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 your 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.

Flanders, a former county on the North Sea, was the heart of economic and political devel-
opment in the low countries during the Middle Ages. It included the present Belgian
provinces of West and East Flanders and parts of modern France and the Netherlands.
With its favorable location on the sea, Flanders became a wealthy trading center with
numerous industrial towns, such as Bruges and Ghent.

Flanders has been the scene of repeated warfare from the time of the Crusades in the 12th
century through the Hundred Years’ War in the 14th century, and from the Spanish Wars
in the 1600s and 1700s to extraordinary battles during World War I.

In 1919 Dr. John McCrae wrote the stirring poem entitled In Flanders Fields. In 15 short
lines, McCrae captures the courage, valor, awe and stark reality of war. The images he
invokes of young people’s lives, once so full of hope and beauty, vanquished by the rav-
ages of warfare, are some of the most moving ever penned. To this day, it continues to be
an emotional salute to the young men and women who have given their lives in warfare
protecting the lands, the people and the dreams we cherish most. His challenge to take up
the torch of the fallen warriors is as desperate a challenge to remember as any we will find
in the English language.

On Veterans or Remembrance Days in North America we often wear a poppy blossom on


our lapel to salute our fallen warriors. This beautiful gesture was encouraged by the vivid
words of Dr. McCrae’s poem. From the intrepid battle fields of Gettysburg and Bull Run,
Europe and the Pacific, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf and all of the battles before and
after, we do our best to remember the sacrifice of others who protected our dreams and
realities. Lest we forget, In Flanders Fields will be there to remind us. We hope that this
musical setting of these immortal words will move you to remember and be grateful.

– John Jacobson and Roger Emerson
