World War I poem
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.
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.
