Alternate Author Name(s): Bridges, Robert+(2)
Subject(s): Plants; Poppies; Planting; Planters

A POPPY grows upon the shore
Bursts her twin cup in summer late:
Her leaves are glaucous green and hoar,
Her petals yellow, delicate.
Oft to her cousins turns her thought,
In wonder if they care that she
Is fed with spray for dew, and caught
By every gale that sweeps the sea.
She has no lovers like the Red
That dances with the noble Corn:
Her blosoms on the waves are shed,
Where she sits shivering and forlorn.
