Florida's Foreverly Shores
+ + + Fields Of The Heart + + +
~Marge Tindal~ 1999
Poppies, poppies everywhere.
I bought one that I must wear.
Wearing it proudly in my lapel,
to remind me of the soldier who fell.
He fell so that I might forever live free.
Gave his life in Victory.
Surely he knows from his vantage above ...
today I remember him with love.
Poppies blowing in the wind,
reminding me of a long lost friend.
The soldier of the field in quiet repose,
surely he's aware of the poppy that grows.
In Flanders field and around the earth ...
adorning the soldier who gave freedom her birth.
Freedom's fought and paid for
with too many who now sleep.
I remember them in my heart ...
and my heart does weep.
