2292. The war to end all wars...

This once was called "Armistice Day"
But all World War I vets passed away
To that home in the sky;
Seventeen mil did die
And "In Flanders Fields" many did stay.

Such a lovely poem.  I memorized it in 7th grade but don't recall being taught that the author was Canadian.  Do you suppose it was the inspiration for Pete Seeger's, "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"
