Queen Anne’s Lace

By: Mary Leslie Newton

Queen Anne, Queen Anne has washed her lace
(She chose a summer’s day)
And hung it on a grassy place
To whiten, if it may.

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has left it there,
And slept the dewy night;
Then waked to find the sunshine fair,
And all the meadows white.

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, is dead and gone
(She died a summer’s day),
But left her lace to whiten on
Each weed-entangled way!
