Caption: Appropriately enough, poppy fields planted along the roadside by the NCDOT are in full bloom in time for Memorial Day, reminiscent of Flanders Fields.

Thank you for the poem, Jill! Poppies are so much in my mind this time of year, and the poem fits so well.

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army
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.

Your picture made me think of this lovely poem. Jill
