The Poppy Field represents a warning about the dangers of getting sidetracked by something that looks extremely enticing because it could have a hidden danger.

“I always did like flowers … There are none in the forest as bright as these”

And soon they found themselves in a midst of a great meadow of poppies.

Now it is well known that when there are many of these flowers together their odour is so powerful that anyone who breathes it falls deep into their most magical dreams.

If the dreamer is not carried away from the scent of the flowers.. they dream on and on forever..

They carried the sleeping girl to a pretty spot beside the river, far enough from the poppy field to prevent her breathing any more of the poison of the flowers, and here they laid her on the soft grass and waited for the fresh breeze to waken her..
