Digital Blasphemy Mobile: Remembrance (Remembrance Day)
Home joinlogin gallery social site prints help


Shortly after posting my latest Halloween render I was asked by one of my Members if I had ever considered doing a wallpaper for Remembrance Day. We don't mark the holiday here in the US but after I did a little reading it certainly seemed like a worthy subject. Especially since quite a few of my Members come from Commonwealth nations.

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.

by John McCrae, May 1915

The symbol of Remembrance Day is the common poppy. My rendering isn't too flashy or overt but I hope I did the subject justice.
