A New Me?
I’ve never been a prima donna
A diva-type, you know?
Think of bare feet and jeans in summer,
Come winter, a dive headfirst into snow.
All of a sudden there’s this child
Calling out from my heart--
She wants to dance in toe shoes
Wear a pink tutu in the fairy queen’s part.
Where’s she been hiding for so long
This new little girl, silent, unseen?
She’s calling out to be noticed,
A mystical Evangeline.
I might want to get to know her,
I might hope she stays in view,
Maybe I could make her happy,
The possibilities are so new.
Swishy dresses and such high heels,
Ordering things avant garde?
It might last for a day or two,
Then I'd be back, smiling, mowing the yard.
