Ellen Bailey Poems

Hair Colors

by Roann Mendriq

Today’s trendy women
Like highlights in their hair,
Of hues that range from Burgundy
to Honey blonde, they dare.

Purple streaks are much preferred,
in swirls of Pink and Red;
A crown of Blonde is interspersed
with a single bright Green thread.

But me, I tend to vacillate,
And dare not be so bold,
I much prefer my Silver locks
to Honey Brown or Gold.

So its silver highlights that I’m wearing,
And I’ll wear them with much pride,
I’ll age with grace and gently,
My silver hair I won’t hide!
