Poppy Maidens


The poppy maidens
dance through the grasses, flouncing
their yellow-gold skirts.

  14. Such pretty poppies…but all we can think of is the wicked witch of the west saying “poppies…poppies will put them to sleep” hee hee hee!!

  15. What a lovely idea. A beautiful metaphor for poppies. I am reminded of Steinbeck’s description of the poppies in Salinas Valley in East of Eden.

    “These too are of a burning color–not orange, not gold, but if pure gold were liquid and could raise a cream, that golden cream might be like the color of the poppies.”
    — John Steinbeck (East of Eden)
