The Invitation

Please put my hair in bunches
With ribbons red and blue,
I’m going to a party
Which starts at half past two.

It’s my friend Anna’s birthday,
She’s nine years old today;
I’ll wrap her present nicely
And then be on my way.

I had a letter from her
Which said, “Please come to tea.“
We’ll play Let’s pass the parcel,
The winner may be me!

So tie my hair in bunches
With ribbons red and blue,
I’m off to Anna’s party
Which starts at half past two.

For Lucy, July 1980.
