BY IVA MAY TERRY,
Written for The Troy Times.
It is but little we can do,
In honoring our soldiers brave,
To purchase poppies, one or two;
Each represents a life they gave.
The proceeds of these poppies go
To aid the helpless and distressed;
A kindly interest let us show,
By wearing one upon our breast.
Perhaps we too will need some day
The kindness of our fellowman;
Then let us make this Poppy Day
Just as successful as we can.
