I think it was chiffon,
The gown Mom had on
Going to a banquet with my Dad…
I stood in shock,
She had cleaned my clock…
Showing beauty that I didn’t know she had!
With a twinkle in her eye
She craftily asked why
I stood there gawking with my mouth open…
I admitted, how she looked
And that she really cooked,
And that was the answer that she was hopin’!
She remembered very well
That day her youngest fell
Head over heals with love at first sight…
She went and “knocked them dead,”
So she and others said,
It was for her a pinnacle night!
