Remembrance Day Poppies

Remembrance Day Poppies are now available at the main gate of the Canadian Embassy in Beijing on

19 Dongzhimenwai Dajie

Please remember to make a donation for those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

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.

         by John McCrae 1919
