I snatched two poppies From the parapet s l

I snatched two poppies
From the parapet's ledge
Two bright red poppies
That winked on the ledge.
Behind my ear
I stuck one through
One blood red poppy
I gave to you.
The sandbags narrowed
And screwed out our jest
And tore the poppy
You had on your breast ...
Down a shell O! Christ
I am choked ... safe ... dust blind I
See trench floor poppies
Strewn. Smashed you lie..
