Description

Princess Bess has loads of clothes

made with satin, snaps, and bows.

And she changes them all day,

for her lessons and ballet.

But if a certain truth be told,

her favorite clothes are much less bold.

She carefully keeps them out of sight

until it's time for bed at night.

Then in her room without a care,

she plays in what she loves to wear.
