Feathered Hat – by Jenny Pace

Stylish, though it was, she had her doubts,
Possessing, as she did, a fickle taste,
Looking, in the glass, she turned about,
Checking the effect on eyes and waist.

Questioning, aloud, “Is it too tall?”
Knowing, in a flash, that she would wear it,
Perceiving, “lack of color, that is all”,
Seeing just the spot to fit a parrot.
