A clever contrivance (I mean that in the complimentary sense) to have the journey of the bonnet portray the stages of life. Beautiful imagery.

First of all, your hint just cracked me up...

Now for this charming poem...what lovely images, and the journey of the bonnet through this woman's life is a very charming touch! Sort of reminds me of the feather in "Forrest Gump." So nice!

I recently had to say goodbye to a friend who spent a great deal of her life making "prayer bonnets". In each vintage-looking bonnet, she placed a prayer that went along to the recipient. You make me miss her very much.
