Paper Umbrella

Paper umbrella, more than a toy

A symbol sophisticated and chic

Virgin colada or Shirley Temple sweet

In my glass it was a thing of mystic

How grown-up I would feel

A mocktail held to my lips

Paper umbrella pushed to the side

As I took my exultant sips


Padre

There was just something wonderful about those occasions when my parents would splash out for “big kid” drinks at birthdays or other special occasions.
