ON RACE DAY…ACROSS THE POND(S)

My apologies to Demi Monde,

Rosie Rockets, of whom I’m fond…

Race Day costumery

Almost buffoonery,

Seems weird, this side of (either) pond!

A tilting bucket hat—

Black velvet, at that…

Fancy clothes

With—who knows—

What gimmicks for this season’s mat?

Shapely classic dresses

This American guy impresses…

But the head-gear

Is it fun every year,

Why cover those gorgeous tresses?

    Wow! Thanks so much Jonathan! You are quite the talent and I’m very flattered. On why covering the tresses – headwear is mandatory (life would be much easier if that weren’t the case!) Thank you so much, D xx
