What if you slept?

And what if in your sleep, you dreamed?

And what if in your dream,

you went to Heaven?

And there, plucked a strange

and beautiful flower?

And, what if, when you awoke

you had the flower in your hand?

~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

mama and newborn poppy

Woman, how divine your mission

Here upon our natal sod!

Keep, oh, keep the young heart open

Always to the breath of God!

All true trophies of the ages

Are from mother-love impearled;

For the hand that rocks the cradle

Is the hand that rules the world.

~ William Ross Wallace
