red hatter


yes, growing older
but not “elderly” yet
in fact, feeling bolder
with new friends i’ve metIMG_5831

make statement of fashion
wearing purple and red
deep colors of passion
circle hats upon heads

fun club for ten lassies
monthly travels around
visit places quite classy
while laughter abounds

we live and we learn
shop & dine as an art
the education we earn
keeps brain cells smart

if you see us round town
please give us a smile
we’re the happy red hatters
“live-out-loud” is our style!



Linking to dVerse Poets pub where Sarah hosts “seeing red” poetry prompt!

    One of my sisters was/is a Red Hatter. She had great fun for years with that group. Also, quite the collection of red hats. Just keep the living life to the fullest.

    Oh yes! The red hatters – I’ve heard of them. I love your purple dress, too. You sent me back to the original Jenny Joseph poem, just for the fun of it. Keep on having fun!
