We called our father Poppy

We called our father Poppy
So Poppy was his name
There was no greater man
I speak often of his fame

He led a life of struggle
On the ever upward way
He never quit the struggle
Until his dying day

He left a pathway marked
For others now to find
And others will come through
As they struggle up behind

The Poppy trail is marked
But soon will overgrow
So be sure again to mark it
For those you love and know

The trail will have a new name
To those you mark it for
Your name it will include now
Not just Poppy’s anymore
