LADIES DAY ASCOT ~ An Acrostic Sonnet




LOVELY DAY ~ dry not too hot or windy

A PERFECT DAY for wearing a silly hat !

DON'T  LAUGH  ~ some cost $1500 plus

I DIDN'T see hats like that @ KENTUCKY !


SO WHEN I come back ~ I want to be a LADY !


DESPITE ALL that has happened recently in the UK

A MORBID QUEEN'S Speech ~ Fires & Acts of Terrorism

YOU can't cancel LADIES HAT DAY @ Royal Ascot !  


A DAY for forgetting the past & talking through your HAT

SOME of course are there for the Fillies not the LADIES ~ A

CLOSE FINISH is what we all love to see in the GOLD CUP

ORDER of ST GEORGE was beaten by BIG ORANGE by a big nose !

TOMORROW is another Day ~ TODAY is Ladies Day @ Ascot


Thanks for visiting ~ Comments welcome ~ Horsey love BRIAN


This poem is presented as  6~3~5  ACROSTIC SONNET ~ OK


ROYAL ASCOT is the first thing the QUEEN pencils in her Diary

on the 1st of January each year !  She has arrived every day in

an open carriage with a large retinue of her Family.  The Duke

of Edinburgh is now out of Hospital and resting at Windsor Castle.

Despite what Prince Harry is saying ~ the Queen loves her JOB

(despite being 90 !) and Charles can't wait to be KING !  BRIAN

          Ladies Day is some event and you are right about the hats some of them yu need to take a mortgage out to buy.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks ANDY ~ pleased it was a bit COOLER and also that it didn't rain ~ A Top Hat makes a Man and makes him look more important ~ BUT for a LADY a Hat just make her look more BEAUTIFUL ! BRIAN

            Love the acrostic sonnet. I can't believe the hats!! Oh my! I loved your news piece at the bottom. I always love knowing whats up with the royal family. Great job! Christina

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks CHRIS ~ because I love the USA ~ I thought I should include a PURPLE ROSE OF TEXAS instead of A PINK ROSE OF ENGLAND ! Yes the Royal's are a very diverse Family and the is some truth in what Harry says, PRINCE Charles is 69 but he can't start work (as KING) until His Mum dies so technically ~ since he left the NAVY ~ he has been unemployed and may never be KING ! QE2 will not abdicate ~ BUT ~ Charles when the day comes (2028 ?) may hand over to WILLIAM & KATE ? Being ~ Born to be King is never easy ! HUGS BRIAN
