“And far and wide, in a scarlet tide, The poppy’s bonfire spread”. 

Poems of the Orient–The Poet in the East  ~ Bayard Taylor  

I found a beautiful field of poppies today, and then I found a most beautiful poem that reminded me of my friend Francis.

  2. Three thanks kind lady; one for your dreamy poppies, another one for make me discover a so beautiful poem; and another one, a special thanks, for think in this far away fellow, it’s really a wonderful and rare detail in my life 🙂
    I had read about Longfellow but usually I don’t read poetry, besides Borges and the poems of poets here in WordPress poetry is away from me, but that poem is so beautiful that I’m ordering his complete works to my kindle app, what it’s easy because legally it costs 0.00 dollars 😉
    Every time I’ll read to Longfellow I’ll think with gratitude in you, thanks kind lady ^_^

  3. Beautiful images. I love how you have processed them, they hold that dreamy and soft spirit that radiates from poppy fields. As faded photographs from a time gone by.

    1. No processing Otto, film straight out of the Polaroid camera so I can’t take credit 😊 I just scan and post.

    Poppies certainly help: in other ways too apart from their sublime, aesthetic value! Ha ha ha!
