SCARLETT'S SONG, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Sing a song of scarlet poppies in the corn


SING a song of scarlet
Poppies in the corn:
Sing a song of rosy
Blossoms on the thorn .
Sing a song of Robin
Chirping all the day
When the nests are empty
And the skies gray."


Sing a song of scarlet
Hips upon the briar:
Sing a song of dead boughs
Reddening on the fire.
Sing a song of red suns,
Frost, and tingling blood:
Sing a song of Autumn
Flushing the wood.


Sing a song of Scarlett
When the frusts begin
Heaping on the camp - fire
Store of prickly whin.
Sing a song of Marian
Laughing through the wood,
Sing a song of roses -
And Robin Hood.
