Commemoration End of WW1 In Flanders Fields....
Christmas Day 1914 Flanders Fields France"A terrible beauty is born"..W.B. Yeats
The soldier..puts down his rifle...and gently frees the bird.
He whispers softly Merry Christmas little bird A sniper puts down his rifle... ...the digger hears hoarse, lonely voicesAnd whispers... ..beginning to sing...'Gluckiche Weihnacht', Digger.
Stille Nacht Heilige Nacht Sleep in heavenly Peace. (Special thanks to Fremantle press.com.au for permission to use the Text: Jorgensen, N & Harrison-Lever, B (2002) In Flanders Fields. Fremantle Press. Western Australia.)Kathleen Dwyer osu
