Poppy Poem

As the beautiful poppies softly blow, the poor soldiers come and go.

The red proud poppies nicely stand, as the golden sun shines down below.

One by one they slowly grow, but in the war men rapidly go.

All that time they dug and dug, hoping they would return home soon.

Most days people go to prey, at the graves because they were so brave.
