POPPY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh big red poppy, / you look stern and sturdy
Last Line: And you thank the dew for giving you a drink.


OH big red poppy,
You look stern and sturdy,
Yet you bow to the wind
And sing a lullaby . . .
"Sleep, little ones under my breast
In the moonshine . . ."
You make this lullaby,
Sweet, short,
Slow, beautiful,
And you thank the dew for giving you a drink.
