How lovely they were.

With pretty little flowers

Tucked in here and there.

Sign up to our daily newsletter

The i newsletter cut through the noise

Wrapped around with ribbon,

Lightly made of straw.

How our great grandmothers

Must have loved the ones they wore.

If I were young again

I would choose those Easter times,

When the sun was shining

On our bonnets, yours and mine.

Tied again with ribbons

Underneath our chins.

Yet fashions change and re-arrange,

They may come back in.
