Ode to the red poppy makers
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
