A note to my younger self:
Don't take the world so seriously.
You don't always have to do as you're told.

Snatch off that silly bonnet
and run towards freedom.
Make your move, and make it bold.

  4. I've been so enjoying finding your poetry month poems in my inbox, Mary Lee! This one is no exception--love that advice to snatch off that silly bonnet (words some of us still need....)

  5. Oh, that face! All she needs is your encouragement and that silly bonnet is GONE!
