    • 1869, James Russell Lowell, Pictures from Appledore:
      The poppied sails doze on the yard.
    • 1923, Christina Rossetti, Come Hither: A Collection of Rhymes and Poems for the Young of All Ages:
      Young Love lies drowsing
      Away to poppied death;
      Cool shadows deepen
      Across the sleeping face:
      So fails the summer
      With warm, delicious breath;
      And what hath autumn
      To give us in its place?
