Morning-Glory’s Easter Bonnet

Miss Glory, discarding last year’s creation,

For Easter must have a pale pink innovation;

The dream of last year is faded and small,

And blue’s the wrong color – it’s not chic at all.

“An American Beauty,” says Posy, “is style,

To wear my old bonnet is hardly worth while,

Since Paris proclaims that a Madame Cochet

Is entirely too small and absurdly passé.”

A YEAR WITH THE FAIRIES.

    1. Glad she is wearing her flower hat for you! There is a narrow range of color in this image – if you don’t like pink & green . . .

      I wonder if their is a “name” for liking little people wearing acorn hats?

      1. Can it be a popular enough syndrome to have a name? Fairy tale Fixation? I was convinced as a child that there were any number of little people, creatures, etc., around, just out of sight.

        1. Yes, I do think it is popular enough! Are you sure there isn’t still something small still lurking just out of sight – maybe just once in while!
          I always enjoy your thoughts.

        1. Childhood – much happens then – many things to celebrate (and not celebrate). Glad you are enjoying the illustrations. I look forward to reading your fairy tales!
