Diva challenge # 47- Lest We Forget


From "The Diva"-
This week's challenge is simply to remember.   Canadians have "Remembrance Day" up here (Nov 11)  - and every year starting on the last Friday of October the Cadets stand in Mall Entrances offering Lapel Poppies for donation.  The idea of the lapel poppy is pretty neat - based on the Poem "In Flanders Field" written by Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae


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 ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

How many ways are there to say 'beautiful'? Pretty, stunning, fabulous? These drawings are all those. Really pretty poppies are the beginning but the tangles add the pizzazz.
