    too bad the picture wasn’t in color. The red poppies would have been a very nice touch…. Beautiful

    This poem was used not only to mourn WW-1 dead, but in its time also as a recruiting tool in that “War to end all wars” - a line omitted above is “Take up our quarrels with our foes.” America’s Decoration Day, which became Memorial Day, should be remembered most deeply in 2009 for those who died in our Civil War so that ALL Americans have the same rights under our Constitution.

    If you like “In Flanders Fields” by Canadian Dr. Jon McCrea you should enjoy Herman Melville’s “On Malvern Hill”. Malvern Hill was a battlefield during the American Civil War. I think McCrea must have read and been inspired by Melville’s poem. Both inspire deep feelings about the sacrifices our military makes every day. Thank you all for remembering. — Malvern Hill

    Ye elms that wave on Malvern Hill In prime of morn and May, Recall ye how McClellan’s men Here stood at bay? While deep within yon forest dim Our rigid comrades lay– Some with the cartridge in their mouth, Others with fixed arms lifted South– Invoking so The cypress glades? Ah wilds of woe!

    The spires of Richmond, late beheld Through rifts in musket-haze, Were closed from view in clouds of dust On leaf-walled ways, Where streamed our wagons in caravan; And the Seven Nights and Days Of march and fast, retreat and fight, Pinched our grimed faces to ghastly plight–

    Does the elm wood

    Recall the haggard beards of blood?

    The battle-smoked flag, with stars eclipsed, We followed (it never fell!)– In silence husbanded our strength– Received their yell; Till on this slope we patient turned With cannon ordered well; Reverse we proved was not defeat; But ah, the sod what thousands meet!– Does Malvern Wood Bethink itself, and muse and brood?

      We elms of Malvern Hill
        Remember every thing;
      But sap the twig will fill:
      Wag the world how it will,
        Leaves must be green in Spring.

    — Herman Melville
