landscape.
every war is madness,
with every worthless death.
why do we continue this madness?

In Flanders fields (lieutenant-kolonel John McCrae, 1872-1918)

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

thanks pascal+, Beverly, Rachel, Carina, Judith & Óscar!!
I heard this poem a lot in my childhood, because I was born near to these flanders fields, where the earth is still red from al the soldiers who fell in that war.
