Looking for Mabel Normand

Madcap Mabel Normand

Mabel Normand


Brilliant Zinnias, dancing, nodding

With your ruffled, petal bobbing –

Joining all in merry dance,

Fairy laughter, roguish glance –

Witching moods a-scintillating.

Hues that Fashion’s imitating –

Which is flower, which is she –

How tell the Queen of Comedy?
