Why a Poppy
Why are they selling poppies, Poppies in town today?
The poppies are symbols of love my child for the soldiers who marched away.
Why is the poppy so red mother, Why is the poppy so red?
Red is the symbol of blood my child. The blood that the soldiers shed.
Why is the heart of the poppy black, Why is the heart so black?
Black is the symbol of loss my child for the soldiers who never came back.
Why mother dear are you crying so? Your tears are like falling rain.
The tears are fears for you my child for the world is forgetting again.
