    Gentle sleep!
    Scatter thy drowsiest poppies from above;
    And in new dreams not soon to vanish, bless
    My senses with the sight of her I love.

Let but my scarlet head appear
And I am held in scorn;
Yet juice of subtile virtue lies
Within my cup of curious dyes.

Lords of Lethe downs,
Some awake and some asleep,
Sleeping in our crowns.

Summer set lip to earth's bosom bare,
And left the flushed print in a poppy there:
Like a yawn of fire from the grass it came,
And the fanning wind puffed it to flapping flame.
With burnt mouth red like a lion's it drank
The blood of the sun as he slaughtered sank,
And dipped its cup in the purpurate shine
When the eastern conduits ran with wine.

I sing the Poppy! The frail snowy weed!
The flower of Mercy! that within its heart
Doth keep "a drop serene" for human need,
A drowsy balm for every bitter smart.
For happy hours the Rose will idly blow--
The Poppy hath a charm for pain and woe.

And would it not be proud romance
Falling in some obscure advance,
To rise, a poppy field of France?
