Comments

I'm about to do that thing that every Canadian does:

That poem is written by a Canadian. He was a surgeon in World War I, and was killed shortly after he wrote the poem.

@Tim - poetry is such a way to the soul - and to connecting with images and sounds and feelings people experience.

@Mike - we should not forget those who have laid their lives and their souls before us. They are a gift, and a precious one at that. The more I learn about other cultures, the more connected I feel to other ways of seeing and experiencing life.

Long before I knew the poem I knew somehow "poppies" were connected with soldiers and Memorial Day.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) sold them and my dad always bought one for each of his boys.

As a Marine in WW2 he knew what war meant even if he never knew McCrae's poem.

Keep creating...Memories worth keeping alive,
Mike
