Warning: When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple - Jenny Joseph, Pythia Ashton-Jewell

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple. With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.


Jenny Joseph


Happy 85th birthday, Jenny Joseph! The British poet's most well known work, Warning, was embraced by readers who have formed societies and go on outings wearing red hats and purple dresses.
