Poppy

Today in the states we celebrate Memorial Day. Last year in remembrance I shared the custom of wearing a poppy in memory of the sacrifices of war. A symbol of honoring lives lost and keeping the faith started by Moina Michael who after reading the 1918 poem Flanders Fields wrote these lines in reply.

We cherish too, the Poppy red

That grows on fields where valor led,

It seems to signal to the skies

That blood of heroes never dies
