Ezinkambu zaseFlanders kuqhuma ama-poppies
Phakathi kweziphambano, umugqa kulayini,
Lokho kuphawula indawo yethu; nasesibhakabhakeni
Ama-lark, namanje acula ngesibindi, ayandiza
U-Scarce wezwa phakathi kwezibhamu ezingezansi.

Singabafileyo. Ezinsukwini ezimbalwa ezedlule
Sasihlala, sizwa ukusa, sabona ukukhanya kwelanga kukhanya,
Sasithandwa futhi sithandwa, futhi manje sinamanga
Ezinkambu zeFlanders.

Thatha ingxabano yethu nesitha:
Kuwe kusuka ezandleni ezihlulekayo siphonsa
Isibani; kube ngeyakho ukuyibamba phezulu.
Uma wephula ukholo nathi esifa
Ngeke silale, yize ama-poppies ekhula
Ezinkambu zeFlanders.
