In Flanders Fields
by 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.

File name (@ 128 kbps SVP): in_flanders_fields_mccrae.mp3

Here's mine: http://surly.org/librivox/in_flanders_fields_mccrae_squiddhartha.mp3

I wanted to record it at 11:11, but I was at work, and between the noise and the builtin PowerBook microphone, it sounded awful. So I waited until I got home.

I'm awful at poetry (embarrassing, as my sister is a poet!) but here's my version:
