Do you remember?

If you forgot, the words are on your Ten Dollar Bill
(if you are Canadian)

I had to look for myself but there it was on the back in really tiny print, the first verse of In Flanders fields.

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row by row,
That mark our place and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below."
~John McCrae 1872 - 1918

For the complete poem you can go to In Flanders Fields on Wikipedia, the Free Encylopedia.

Thank-you Veterans!
