Add A Silver Rose - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Casual day, money for the disabled, with a new theme:
‘Going Big’, prepared a hat, wide brim, flowers in silver
and white, earrings, glass jewellery, sequins and glitter,
monochrome - studied Ascot pictures from My Fair Lady
and added a purple flower

But my eyes without makeup spoil the idea of good taste,
bought a mask – fulfilling my dream of taking part in a
masquerade; hat pulled low over the mask in purple and
gold, the look was just right, the big bunch of silver flowers
threatening to slide off

Add a silver rose and I look smart – yet casual day without
a get-together meant I had to run from floor 1 to floor 10 to
meet up with all my friends, made some new friends today
everybody loved the confection on my head, a background
for my golden mask - sitting still at my desk was

Absolutely impossible….
