WHY DO YOU WEAR A HAT? – a blog poem sort of thing for International Hat Day by Linda Palmer © 2015
Do you wear a hat to feel good?
Does it make you feel like you’re great?
If that’s the reason, it’s okay,
Put it back on – don’t hesitate!
Do you wear a hat to cover
Your head where there used to be hair?
Don’t worry, I won’t take it off
To reveal what’s now under there!
Do you wear a hat to dress up
For Christmas or Easter Sunday?
It’s a form of Christian worship
To Jesus Christ, Who is the Way.
Do you wear a hat to show folks
That you can be easy going?
Is it your way to be relaxed
And show that with life you’re flowing?
Do you wear a hat that’s funny
Just to make other people smile?
I admire those who use humor
To help others walk the next mile.
Do you wear a hat to go with
An entourage on wedding day?
The attention will be focused
On you for sure, what can I say?
Do you wear a hat to honor
This great country’s military?
Is it part of a uniform
As you serve civilians like me?
Do you wear a hat just for fun?
Is it just what you want to do?
Far be it for me to change things,
God just wants for you to be you.
Do you wear a hat to keep warm?
A sock cap can be very nice.
Winter is coming and it’s cold,
There will be so much snow and ice.
Do you wear a hat in summer
To keep the sun off of your face?
That’s a very good idea
Along with sunscreen everyplace!
If you like my little hat verse
I wish you’d leave a comment here.
Your comments mean a lot to me,
They fill my heart with love and cheer!
HAVE A VERY HAPPY INTERNATIONAL HAT DAY! 🙂
