Queen Anne’s Lace does not seem

to mind the extreme heat or even

the lack of rain one tiny bit.

She stands perfectly erect with

exquisite bearing, her pretty white

head of lace held high and proud.

One can easily see why someone

thought to call her Queen.

The Great Aunt used to cut and dry

the flowers hung by their toes in the barn

for her large showy dried flower arrangements.

Oh she showed me all about it once but I

was too impatient ever to do a thing

that required all that long time of waiting.

That is not for me though I waited

nine months apiece for my three babies

my favorite projects of all.
