Flower of the Month | The Humble Poppy

ERE WE FORGET

img_0101

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

They gave their lives for you and you, so, so true.

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

Please don’t forget the survivors, they fought on..

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

Let not their efforts be forgotten be forlorn.

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

I laid down to feel their pain, don’t let it be again.

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

The fields now verdant, from feeding on past hope.

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

The poppy, if it had a voice would scream “No more”!

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

My ear, hears voices begging. don’t lose the peace.

I’ve walked the fields were once men lay dead,

They found their peace, and we will remember them.

    Beautiful poetry, the fields of poppy in the picture looks kind of creepy :-), looks like some little mini red things going to climb up that castle 🙂
