This pretty lady attracts attention anywhere she goes. We all want to see which hat she'll wear today.
On the porch where we sat
I complimented Lois on her hat
"I have nearly 30 now," she explained
"Every year a few more hats I've gained
Indoors or out, I'd never seen Lois
Without a colorful, straw, wide-brimmed hat
What secret was under all those hats?
One day Lois, on her walker, came in to eat
She wore a pink shirt, tan shorts, braces on her feet,
And a gigantic, floppy pink hat
"Wow, Lois, you look hot in that hat!"
She stopped by my chair. "I bought a new hat."
She smiled. "I didn't have one that shade of pink
Got my hair done too. She pulled off the hat.
Her hair gleamed white, a perfect coiffeur
"I wear wide brims to protect my eyes, you know,
"I'm legally blind."
