Paper crowns and bullrush scepters
Her throne a willow tree
In a blue cotton gown
And Nike hightop glass slippers
She reigns over a grassy court
A fearless leader ~ Wild and free
A champion of the winged and fourlegged
Of apple tree and dandelion seed
Dutiful to her backyard kingdom
Collecting the leavings and legacy
Long may she live!
Long may she reign!
~ Our backyard Queen ~
