Tour Scotland Video Poppies Weeping Window Balhousie Castle Perth



Tour Scotland video of the weeping window of Poppies on ancestry visit to Balhousie Castle home of the Black Watch Museum in Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. This cascade marks the centenary of the First World War. Weeping Window by Paul Cummins, Artist and Tom Piper, Designer. Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies seen pouring from a high window to the ground below. The sculptures were initially conceived as the key dramatic sculptural elements in the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London in England.

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.
