Waves of Poppies Watching men by the ten By the hundred And a thousand more falling, With my eyes tightly shut Finding out that silence has a presence. Red petals standing in legions An army of poppies in waves Widespread on crosses, As the trumpeter calls All the dead soldiers alive again. Ghosts posting for duty March by in the memory, As the bugle hits it’s eerie last note We all wave goodbye wistfully. Back to the graveyard plinths, To the cenotaph, To the marble monuments, Into our veins And into the blossom of our hearts.
