Poppies


Poppies of blood stain the earthen floor,
In memory of those that are no more,
Thousands of poppies, all so red,
One for each person that's now dead.
War-red poppies line the ground,
All is quiet; not a sound
They deserve to live again
Through these tiny poppies they live.
And so, in this month, we give
A blood red poppy,
And so, through this field, we'll always remember.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
