Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red
The blood swept lands and seas of red,

Where angels dare to tread.

As God cried a tear of pain as the angels fell,

Again and again.
As the tears of mine fell to the ground
To sleep with the flowers of red
As any be dead
My children see and work through fields of my
Own with corn and wheat,
Blessed by love so far from pain of my resting
Fields so far from my love.
It be time to put my hand up and end this pain
Of living hell. to see the people around me
Fall someone angel as the mist falls around
And the rain so thick with black thunder I hear
Over the clouds, to sleep forever and kiss
The flower of my people gone before time
To sleep and cry no more
I put my hand up and see the land of red,
This is my time to go over,
I may not come back
So sleep, kiss the boys for me

(Unknown Soldier)

I am so glad I got to come up to London especially to see the poppies at the Tower of London a week before Armistice Day. We were so lucky to have wonderful sunshine.
One hand made, individual poppy for each person who paid the ultimate price for our freedom in the First World War. We owe them so much.
A truly humbling and moving experience and a breathtaking sight.

Lest We Forget
