SHE LOOKS BEYOND TO-MORROW, by            
First Line: I will wear purple bonnets
Last Line: Tell me any foolish thing!
Subject(s): Hats; Life; Old Age; Youth


I will wear purple bonnets
And high black shoes.
Too soon, too soon,
Youth is all we lose.
Losing Life is nothing much
After youth is gone.
Tell me I am sweet to touch
For old age will be long;
Tell me that this yellow dress
Is a part of loveliness --
Like a jonquil in the spring --
Tell me any foolish thing!
