This morning CBC made mention of John McCrae's poem In Flanders Fields saying the first line was In Flanders Fields the poppies "blow". In school we were to memorize it as poppies "grow". There's an awesome photo of his handwriting on wikipedia. Where you can clearly see the word "grow". I wonder why there was a version with the word blow.

I've never been as moved by poetry. Lest we forget.
