A friend, Ginny Dyson reminded me of this one yesterday...
"Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round and pick blackberries."
I think that is appropriate for these "fiery" poppies. One time for a theater production of the Wizard of Oz, I painted an entire field of poppies that was about 8 ft tall by 18 ft.wide, but I never got a photo of it. It was so much fun and I have loved painting poppies ever since.
