Ode to the red poppy mak­ers

Geraldton Guardian - - OPINION -

To pay tribute to the won­der­ful vol­un­teers and their skills (Guardian, 28/9): A Poppy Tribute

Poppy pat­terns dance in my head

Balls of wool, black and red; Com­mu­nity mem­bers gather to­gether

To knit and crotchet in the spring weather.

A poppy army on a mis­sion To dec­o­rate the cathe­dral is what they’re wishin’.

A me­mo­rial con­cert held in November

Will help town folk to re­mem­ber.

The an­niver­sary of the end of WWI

The be­gin­ning of the cathe­dral’s con­struc­tion;

Friend­ship, ded­i­ca­tion, the talents of many hours

Com­bine to cre­ate the beau­ti­ful poppy flowers.

Pat Clark, Range­way
