Famous Poem for Memorial Day




While attending a writing conference in February in Kansas City, MO, I visited the National WWI Museum and Memorial.


When you enter, you can walk across the entrance hall to a light-filled, high-ceilinged rotunda with a translucent floor. If you look down, you’ll see an art installation of red poppies strewn across the white floor below.


When I asked a docent about the installation, he handed me a postcard of the above poem, In Flanders Field by John McCrae, a Canadian, which served as the inspiration.


In made me very sober, indeed, to think of all of those who gave their lives in service to our country.
