Surely there is nothing wrong with looking sweet and nice?
Pollyanna certainly has a knack to make others look twice
A dainty flower in her hair always makes her feel good
Pretty and feminine, feeling like a guinea pig should
On Monday you will see her wearing a poppy of red
For Tuesday its blue forget-me-nots that tend to spread
Perhaps some sweet violets on the days that follow
Sometimes creating a daisy chain that gleams like a halo
At the weekend she favours a golden dandelion head
As it’s Sunday she often has a longer lay in her straw bed
Whatever the occasion she’s not dressed without a bloom
Smiling as she passes you wafting her gentle perfume.
