Poem: Flanders poppies

This is one of several poems by Lorna inspired by her visit to Northern France in 1920 when aged 6.

It is interesting to compare the content and style of these different poems on the same theme, taking into account Lorna's age at the time that she wrote them. See The battlefields of France (8th January 2020) written when Lorna was 15, and Pietà (14th March 2020) composed when she was in her 20s.
