“In Flanders Fields”

By Col. 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">

In Flanders Fields

"In Flanders Fields" is een toneelstuk over de Slag om Vimy Ridge (Frankrijk) die plaatsvond van 9 tot 12 april 1917. De inleiding verwijst naar de duizenden graven die op de site van Notre-Dame de Lorette zijn gevonden. Daarna begint de episode van voorbereiding en hevige strijd. Dankzij het Canadese Expeditieleger dat als versterking kwam, werd de strijd gewonnen en de site om 6 uur 's ochtends veiliggesteld (koperkoor begeleid door 6 klokken). De titel van dit werk verwijst ook naar een gedicht van John Mac Rae dat zich bij de ingang van het herdenkingsmuseum bevindt.
