The Victorian Era
Oh! How grand it must have been
To have existed in "Victorian Days"
The fancy apparel...Way back then
So grandiose, with flaunting ways
Queen Victoria, who set the trend
In finery, was she always dressed
So style conscious, until the end
Her seamstress, getting no rest
Riding or outings, the ladies wore
Their "Cloaks" and "Redingotes"
Victorian style, with fanciness galore
Be it for parties, or traveling boats
Dainty slippers, with pretty flowers
Accessories in purple and red
In quaint shops, searching for hours
Long skirt, or shorter instead?
Pretty accessories, made with fur
Colorful Shawls, that were so chic
Careful of.... Every bloke or cur
Affluent men, their only pick
New Industry, was in the making
Rails ... being laid everywhere
So much money, for the taking
Affording women, to dress with flair
That Era... Ever so fascinating
Flaunting all itís beauty and charm
The rush, at times so exasperating
Prestige and class, arm and arm!
