Red Hat

soft satin and velveteen
shiny glitter in between
ostrich feathers to catch the eye
look - ‘look at me’ you cry

brimming bright with face aglow
you are here to steal the show
you bubble by bright and sure
doyenne of the dancing floor

focal point for fun and play
for excitement head this way
and at the end of your twirling day
carefully you’re boxed away
