Helen Lyr Req: The green fields of France (39) RE: Lyr Req: The green fields of France 22 Nov 19

Allan, if I was singing this line "countless white crosses in mute witness stand" I think it would be a fair bet that I would get it wrong. It's a bit of a tongue-twister, but also the second phrase is possibly a bit clearer in modern-speak, "The countless white crosses stand mute in the sand".

Having said that, poetically speaking, I like the original line.
