My garden had a lot of volunteers this year, especially the poppies. So many stuck their heads up when I called for help in the jungle of my garden, that I couldn’t decide which ones to choose and which to deny. Here are two, the first of many that I hope to post as time goes on.
I’m royal purple says the queen,
Most regal that you’ve ever seen.
I come from tall and stately stock,
My “white and purple” says I rock.
I’m one of those from Flanders’ Fields
Remembered well, my power shields
The fallen from forgotten sleep
As every year, I watch do keep.
