Poppies : Video-Lyrics by Buffy Sainte-Marie
"Poppies" From Album "Illuminations"
I tippy-toe across your dream each night
so as not to wake you...
Asleep in your summer,
a garland of flowers
yellow and white around your waist.
While I walk these paths of ice
ice my breasts and strings of ice my hair.
My hands two hooks of steel.
Frozen open pout.
Flakes of snow your bridal veils
I come down the soft white path
Bouquets of poppies
spilling from my heart.
