Manic Monday #17

This Week's Theme: Red


We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

If you're playing along this week, please don't forget to sign Mr Linky.
Hope you are having a great Memorial Day!

This is the time of year to buy the poppies from the Veterans. Then there is the poem from WWI that made poppies the symbol that begins:

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.
