Poppy Fields Forever

Poppy Fields Forever

Poppies in a field of meadow 
Tall, blood, red, blooms,.
Only seen by a lonesome scarecrow
Devasted as winter looms.
Young men battling in fields of sludge 
For peace and freedom of choice
Some joined to escape their drudge 
Allowing us to have our voice. 

Poppies in a field of meadow
Tall ,blood, red, blooms,
Representing those brave fellows 
Their souls here forever entombed.

Painting By Richard Harpum
