"A Poppy Day Plea" by Iva May Terry (1929)

            A Poppy Day Plea.


        (Blind Poetess.)

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.

        Cohoes, N.Y.

Troy Times. May 24, 1929: 24 col 2.
