When I was just a little seed
I left my mothers side,
And found myself making new roots
And it is there I will abide.

I have landed in a field
Like none I've seen before,
There are a lot of white crosses here
and as I turn oh... there's one more.

And in between those rows of white
I see flowers of red with black inside,
And not to very far from me
The wind has sent one for a ride.

My name is Poppy, he said to me
And this place is called Flanders Fields
We are the flowers that reminds all people
Who gave their lives and were killed.
