Hey Nonino
By Helen Hoyt
From “City Pastorals”

  I WILL put on my gay dress,
My corals and locket;
On my hair a blue ribbon,
And my softest shoes.
I will go and dance        5
Where the mirror will show me;
I will go and dance
And turn myself and courtesy—
(Oh, the mirror will be glad!)—
And courtesy way way down,        10
Spreading out my dress
To watch how it looks,
Spreading out my gay dress over the floor.
