VICTORIAN LACE ON MOTHER'S DAY

 

 

Victorian Lace on Mother's Day

 

Let's take a journey back in time

To centuries long ago

When everything was beautiful

And gentle streams did flow.

 

Where happy children graced the halls

In mansions on a hill

Where charm and grace did set the pace

In memories lingering still.

 

A time when ladies met for tea

At tables set for two

Southern Belles with things to tell

In misty morning hue.

 

Corsets here and bustles there

Such lovely flowing dresses

A touch of elegance was found

Beneath those flowing tresses.

 

All dressed up in fringe and lace

With gowns of flowing white

They held their children close to them

And tucked them in at night.

 

With locks of hair pulled up in buns

And topped with pretty bonnet

The legend that was left behind

Goes something like a sonnet.

 

The century now has turned the tide

They since have gone away

And other mothers fill the earth

To brighten Mother's Day.

 

Through the passing years in time

One thing will stay the same

The precious name of mother

Her love will always remain.

 

For all the ladies gone before

I pray for heaven's grace

To all the mothers here today

I wish you frills and lace.
