Wise mother, and a delightful poem.
Loved the alteration of the title - which intrigued me to read on. The poem has a wonderful meter to it, all well-flavored with rich textured purpled kinsmen to be finally crowned with a wonderful moral.

You have such an amazing almost inspired sense of meter -- the lines flow so effortlessly and those simply perfect words choices you make - you are truly a gifted writer of verse
Every time I read one of your poems, I know I am going to be entertained and often inspired. This one did both. I enjoyed it very much.

A fun read about that truly royal color. I would have the same problem if I had to choose just one shade for a dress.
