Yesterday we went to London to see the poppies at the Tower; we were not alone …….
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.
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
(from John Macrae’s poem - In Flanders Fields)
Just like the real event, the scene was crowded both with poppies and the the viewers, very moving despite the crush. I particularly liked the created evil shown by the modern Tower of Mordor (the Shard) looking with some malice over the scene. In many ways it was fitting that so many were there……
