Coronation Night

I’m not sure if my daughter will like this, but I’m posting the picture, anyway. My shy little girl joined (through her classroom adviser’s encouragement) to join a popularity contest (based on ticket sales) at her former school.

Isn’t this a nice entry for MellowYellowBadge, Smiling Sally and ?

My daughter was wearing a  yellow-gold gown.  She was crowned Second Runner-Up for Ms. Our Lady of Carmelite Academy in 2004. She was only six here and a first grader. The floor and the gown of the girl next to my daughter and her cute partner are blue. The stage adorned with red cloth was decorated with artificial flowers.

    Lovely little dancers!


    Tonight, my dear, I’m seeing red—
    Or is it puce or rose?
    Whatever’s going round my head
    Is tingling all my toes.

    My heart, my dear, becomes inflamed
    With passion sore ablaze;
    Perhaps it is because I miss
    Your glowing, crimson gaze.

    Whate’er the cause, my face is flushed
    Like a ripened cherry,
    No longer healthy, but inflamed—
    See the vessels serry*?

    A certain sanguine aftertaste
    Is clinging to my tongue,
    For I have kissed your ruby lips—
    To which the claret clung.

    *serry – (archaic) to crowd closely together
