Old hats new hats,
short hats, tall hats,
red hats blue hats,
big hats, small hats.

Hats on sticks,

This is quite melodic in it's brilliant tone. I happen to be hat envious, I look horrid in a hat. This is a lovely piece here Allison. Enjoyed it! Ashley xo

The hats have it, I believe. Your joy in life is contagious. The last stanza is the best stanza. Dance on, Alison. Love, Sandra

Fabulous poem Allie - love the imagery of all the hats. I see a sort of Sally Bowles character in view and you doing a dance.... love the introspective part at the end. Just divine! HG: -) xx

I agree with Coach... this is delightfully reminicent of Seuss - not just for it's bouncy rhymes and carefree flow, but too for the uplifting message embedded within. I'm a big fan of Mr. Geisel and hold that it requires a good deal of intelligence and talent to do what he did as well as he did. That you've been able to pen this, of like caliber, is to be applauded. This is a treat! Hurray for you! Christine

I enjoyed this mad hatter romp immensely Allison Aquestion for you I beleive there is a Horrid hat shop located in very big city which specialises in creating peculiar hats for old ladies.Have you ever noticed no two old ladies wear the same hat. Fantastic colours and textures which are never seen on sale in normal shops. Do you know its whereeabouts.?
