The Queen of Hearts Story
She is followed by her suit,
but out of the dozen in her court,
only to her king and son Jack does she consort.
She stands out from her pack,
her comely poker face trumps every pip by fact.
Never tussled in any shuffle,
she rules without a word or moving a muscle.
For the Queen of Hearts there is never a sub,
crowned and dubbed,
sharp as a diamond, her wit is her club.
A gardener who deftly handles any spade,
she is the loveliest card ever made.
For every challenge dealt she aces,
she keeps her deck in place or plays them,
she is the queen of all seasons.
For this and many other reasons,
this queen is hard to run against,
no one will cross or doubt her,
for a royal flush is not in hand without her.
