A poppy, our national symbol of remembrance and tears for Her Majesty The Queen who has died this afternoon.
I was at The (Late) Mate's house this afternoon checking everything was ok and saw that his front garden was full of poppies. I turned the news back on as soon as I returned home.
" I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be."
Words about poppies from an emotional funeral hymn.
Thoughts are with her grieving family.
