lest we forget. { Remembrance Day 2009 }

POPPY

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 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.

- John McCrae -

    Really nice composition in this shot, love the strong colours on the Poppy in amongst the fallen leaves. Quite poetic in a way given the theme.

    Thanks for the comments on my site. Japan is a beautiful country, so much to shoot, a photographers dream.
