Poppy, you shall live forever
With the crimson of her kiss,
Through a summer day undreamed of
In a land like this.
Once I battered with Oblivion:
For the crimson of her kiss
I would give a thousand morrows
Of a day like this.
But I was a foolish buyer;
For the crimson of her kiss
Woke me, and I heard the wind say,
"Nevermore like this!"
Poppy, you shall sleep forever
With the crimson of her kiss
Through the centuries, undreamed of
In a rhyme like this.
