You dress in finery fit for the princess of joy.
Vibrant colors grab the eyes of every passer-by,
they can’t help but smile for the beauty of you.
Your presentation brings happiness to those around you
when you wear the colors of a blazing sunset
and the most brilliant rose bouquet. I imagine
who you are, you with handwoven hat
and sun drenched skin. I think I know
until you turn and your eyes meet mine.
