“In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae (1915)

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.

  1. Thanks for sharing our Film. Great web site by the way – some amazing work. Tim not only directed, but composed the music.

    The film shows the relationship of low angles with a low voice embedded the voice as being organic in the flow of images. The advance from strong black and white to finalising in colour placed rhythm and narrative progression. The symbolism of life and death with the black, white and red, the lone soldier… etc…. We love to film poetry

    Thanks again Cinematic Poems, from Catherine@Evenlode Films
