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.
