Simple pleasures

The simple pleasures offered to passers by 
 By a yard full of bright red poppies 
Are not to be underestimated. 
Whether the colors remind you of Christmas
 Or the flowers bring memories of Dorothy 
In The Wizard of Oz, 
Or the profusion simply makes you smile, 
They are a gift, and as I pass, 
I bow my head in gratitude for the cheery sight.
