I Will Wear Scarlet

When I dance again

I think I will wear Scarlet

A petticoat of brilliant red

That shows as my hips wind

To the rhythm of island song

Or the beat of entwined hearts

When I see you next

I think I will wear Scarlet

A corset with blood red ribbons

One that stops my breath

Stops yours too, when you know

I have worn this for you

When I marry again

I think I will wear Scarlet

For all the world to see

A petticoat of spun silver

Ribbons of golden light

But a dress of gossamer Scarlet

All of me come together

When I wear Scarlet
