A not very good sonnet today!

Poppy Fields (Monet)

She walks in lush green fields. The poppies rise

That was lovely

I could visualise the flowers - the colours, the sky.

Have a great Easter

I've discovered your site by following a link from Surroundings. I know the painting and can see it as well as if you'd posted it with the words.

A reproduction hangs above our bed!

The only bit of the poem which puzzles me is - "there are two of her and a boy".

oh dear, I hope I haven't spoiled it for you, lol!

it was a reference to the fact that he sketched the lady and the boy (his wife and son) twice, at the top of the hill then again in the foreground.
