A poppy grows upon the shore

Language: English

A poppy grows upon the shore, 
Bursts her twin cup in summer late: 
Her leaves are glaucous green and hoar, 
Her petals yellow, delicate. 

Oft to her cousins turns her thought, 
In wonder if they care that she 
Is fed with spray for dew, and caught 
By every gale that sweeps the sea. 

She has no lovers like the red, 
That dances with the noble corn: 
Her blossoms on the waves are shed, 
Where she stands shivering and forlorn.
