Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne, Queen Anne,

She sat in the sun,

Making of lace till the day was done.

She made it green, she made it white,

She made it of flowers and sunshine and light,

She fastened it on a stalk so fine,

She left it in the hedgerow to shine.

Queen Anne’s lace, Queen Anne’s lace,

You find it growing all over the place.
