A Poppy Appeared in Winter

You tossed your peachy skirts into the air,
And stood, and shouted, “Look at me!”
Through gales and rains and frost you still stood there

November’s blasts made all the trees so bare
But still you stood so proud and solitary
You tossed your peachy skirts into the air.

The other plants around you would not dare
To face this season bravely and with glee
Through gales and rains and frost you still stood there.

You tossed your peachy skirts into the air,
Your urchin heart exposed for all to see.
You dared us all, and passers by, to stare.

You clearly had a message we could share
“Be strong, stand tall, embrace the storms like me.”
Through gales and rains and frost you still stood there

Life can be hard, and rarely is it fair
But we can thrive and Poppy helped me see.
She tossed her peachy skirts into the air,
Through gales and rains and frost she still stood there.
