A pretty red ribbon,

An ever so luscious ruby red ribbon,

Floated by me

Rather by surprise.

I hastened to catch it

And promptly arranged it

Into a lock of plaited hair.

Then right as it was tucked and proper

A wind stirred up

A wind that tossed my hair all a muck

So that I lost that red ribbon,

That sweet beautiful ruby ribbon.

And never found it again.
