114. Poppies
 
 
SHE loves blood-red poppies for a garden to walk in.
In a loose white gown she walks
            and a new child tugs at cords in her body.
Her head to the west at evening when the dew is creeping,
A shudder of gladness runs in her bones and torsal fiber:        5
She loves blood-red poppies for a garden to walk in.
