Our Backyard Queen

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!
