In Flanders Fields
Poppies are featured in this full coverage cross stitch pattern adapted with permission from original art by Anker. It pays tribute to the veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice, and memorialized by Lt. Col. John McCrae, a Canadian physician who penned the war poem "In Flanders Fields" at the outset of World War I.
In Flanders fields the poppies blowBetween the crosses, row on row,That mark our place; and in the skyThe larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below.We are the Dead. Short days agoWe 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 throwThe torch; be yours to hold it high.If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies growIn Flanders fields.
