Pink is for Girls

Pink is for a newborn babe

with tiny curling toes,

A baby girl whose daddy thinks

She’s “mighty like a rose.”

Pink is for a little girl

dressed in party clothes,

A flower girl who holds

A basket, fragrant with petals of a rose.

Pink is for her birthday,

Ice cream in a dish,

Sweet frosting on a birthday cake,

Candles to make a wish.

Pink is for a young girl

ready for a ball,

Blushing cheeks and flowers,

She’s standing in the hall;

Wearing a gown of silver,

shining pink and blue,

Will he ask her for a dance

And make her wish come true?
