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.
Ice nose
Snow eyes
Frozen open pout.
Flakes of snow your bridal veils
I come down the soft white path
Bouquets of poppies
spilling from my heart.
