Fine Art by CAROL CAVALARIS
A young woman wearing a hat decorated with big red poppies, inspired this story.
Woman In The Poppy Hat art and prose by Carol Cavalaris
She remembers a field of red poppies
on that hot summer day
where she and her beloved lay.
Oh how they laughed and played.
She remembers how he picked the blossoms
gathering a love bouquet
placing them in her hat
in such a gentle way.
She remembers how he crossed his heart
and promised he would never go away.
And every summer when the poppies come
she remembers yesterday.
