in flander's 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 flander's 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.

2. I had another Remembrance Day parade today - we had the dress whites (but no rifles orz) so we did three-man flag party. which meant standing outside for over two hours without a jacket on. if I ever do that again I'm wearing a shirt underneath the dress shirt. /D we were stuck behind the coast guard auxiliary so, um, we couldn't see anything orz.

Tryouts in an hour or for flag party, I have better drill than C (and am more liked, lmao) so I'm pretty much guaranteed the spot. >___>;

3. [ profile] koimei, I got your letter yesterday! *___* You have such cute stationary~ I'm writing back to you, so please expect a letter sometime (not so) soon (damn postal service)~

4. I went to the dentist today to get a filling and they ended up sort of smoothing out the chip in my front now one is shorter than the other and I kind of feel like an idiot. -___-" I hate it when you go and then after you leave it feels like something's peeling on the back of your tooth. :/

5. Vaguely appropriate icon is vaguely appropriate. /D

I had no Remembrance Day assembly today. It was weird.

We are the Dead. Short days ago we lived felt dawn saw sunset glow.

Mm~ I always loved that line. And I always forgot that it was "between the crosses row on row that mark our place" and just skipped to the larks still bravely singing XD

....I'm still ehhhhhhh about not really doing anything for remembrance day so ignore me~

I don't like the dentist.

I skipped out on UTS's assembly for today's parade. /D;; idk, it felt like I was doing more in the parade than in assembly.

it is a nice line, isn't it? it's a poem meant to be read, I think. they had a childrens' choir sing it today and I was like " :/"

I don't either T____T

It is, isn't it? I always get shivers down my back when they read it out loud. ///
