Lovely Easter bonnets

editorial image

Old time Easter bonnets,

How lovely they were.

With pretty little flowers

Tucked in here and there.

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.
