Memorial Day 2011: Remember Them

At Mister Landscaper, we honor and remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.


In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae


In Flanders fields the poppies grow

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.


Be thankful. Be safe. And have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
