Yellow Dress
by Janet Lee
Mary had a yellow dress
Bought from the department store.
It looked as beautiful as the moon,
And as bright as the sun.

Mary wore all the time
The yellow dress I felt so right.
Every day from day to night
I saw her in the dress so bright.Buy me a yellow dress.I cried to Mom and Dad,
“As beautiful and bright
As the dress the girl living near has!”

I cried and cried and cried,
Until they said with sad eyes,
“We need food for your baby sister.
And clothes for your coming brother.Since then I’ve learned
Mary’s yellow dress
Is better to dream of
Than to ask for.
