In Flanders Fields ... (a message !)

the song it tells how the ‘red poppies dance’
its true as true can be
i’ve sat and watched for endless hours
they danced a dance for me

the sun it arose on a fine summer morn
across the Flanders Plains
the timely wind it shimmied in
i’m sure the poppies understood
the millions standing proud
like soldiers all in unisen
made a sprawling crimson shroud

the wind it moved their wonderous form
in waves across the fields
i’m sure they danced an Irish jig
and some pretty Scottish reels

yes the dear souls of those heroes dead
still walk this sacred land
this is their blood rich soil
that blooms the flowers so grand

year in year out they rise to tell
and remind us time and time again
of the sacrafice they made for us
that it should never be in vein

I wont forget the message
that was told to me this day
and as I bowed my head in prayer
I heard the christian soldiers pray

they all without exception
prayed for a joyous better day
when all their enemies and neighbours
would find a peaceful way
of living with one another
in a world without hatred and affray

I now know that war is senseless
and that evil is alive
in the hearts of so called leaders and politicians
and in the corruption of their lies

my message to these people
from the poppy fields of France
is look toward the teachings of the Bible
and give world peace a chance

In Flanders Fields ... (a message !)
