In Flanders Fields, written in John McCrae's hand for Punch magazine, December 8, 1915. Library and Archives Canada 179238

Note the word “grow” instead of “blow” at the end of the first line. McCrae made several handwritten copies of the poem using “grow,” but eventually changed the line on the advice of his editor.
