Poppy's Red; A Memorial Day Tribute
We cherish, too, the Poppy red that grows in fields where valor led. It seems to signal to the skies, that blood of heroes never dies, but lends a lustre to the red of the flower that blooms above the dead. --Moira Michael... It is Memorial Day in America; May 25, 2009. May we all remember those that have fallen to give us our freedom, from whatever land we hail. Let us lift them up to our Heavenly Father their lives, families, daughters, sons, wifes, and husbands that they may be blessed.
About this creation

In Flanders' Field the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row, that marks our place; and in the sky the larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amid the guns below.

Take up our quarrel with the foe: to you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high.

And now the torch and poppy red wear in honor of our dead, fear not that ye have died for naught we've learned the lesson that ye taught in Flanders' Field.

Quoting John the Imaginative The poem is based off of John McCrae's "In Flanders Field"
It's half and half, I took the words from two; one the original, and two the response to it from an American Moira Michael. But yes, some of the words are from John McCrae.

Great job! It's a good tribute to them. The way you made the first picture really adds to the feeling. God bless all our troops, past or present. Oorah!

Quoting Father Khal this is beautiful, in a strange kind of way. is this memorial for both world wars or just the first one?
The poems are from the First, figures are from the Second, so both pretty much!
