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 yOU  break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

WWI react ! 

 

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

 

If you break faith with us who die

 

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

 

In Flanders fields.

 

Dans les champs de Flandre, les coquelicots fleurissent
entre les rangées de croix qui marquent notre place
Et dans le ciel, malgré le rugissement des canons
L'on perçoit encore le chant des courageuses alouettes.

 

Nous sommes les Morts  et pourtant quelques jours auparavant
Nous regardions l'aurore poindre et le soleil rougir en
Se couchant. Nous avons aimé  et étions aimés et aujourd'hui
Nous gisons dans les champs de Flandre.

 

Reprenez notre combat contre l'ennemi:
De nos mains qui chancellent, nous vous confions
Le flambeau qui sera vôtre et que vous tiendrez haut.

 

Si vous ne croyez plus en nous qui mourrons, jamais nous
Ne retrouverons le repos dans les Champs de Flandre
Où  fleurissent les coquelicots
