The Inquisitive Mind of a Child.

Why are they selling poppies, Mummy?
Selling poppies in town today
The poppies, child are flowers of love
For the men who marched away

But why have they chosen a poppy, Mummy?
Why not a beautiful Rose?
Because my child, men fought and died
In the field where poppies grow

But why are the poppies so red, Mummy?
Why are the poppies so red?
Red is the colour of blood my child
The blood that our soldiers shed

The heart of the poppy is black, Mummy
Why does it have to be black
Black, my child, is the symbol of grief
For the men who never came back

But why, Mummy, are you crying so?
Your tears are giving you pain
My tears are my fears for you my child
For the world is forgetting again.

Poppy
We are but children small,
We are too little to do it all.
Children you may do your part.
Love each other is how you start.
Play without fighting.
Share your games and toys.
Be kind and thoughtful,
To all girls and boys.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
