Cycles Sirius by H. Gray*
Daisy had always been a serious girl. Then she heard two songs that changed her from parochial to pioneering. She took the lyrics literally, and believed.
Soon the whole town gossiped behind Daisy's back, too aghast or rigid to face her abreast.
Laughing and pointing far from the right Daisy pedaled away, into the night.

This is a combo Magpie and Flash Fiction Friday 55.
- To read more Friday Flash 55 pieces for this week visit The G-Man.
- To read more Magpies resulting from this week's photo prompt, visit Tess Kincaid at Magpie Tales.

*Biography: Henri Gray was a pseudonym of Henri Boulanger, born in 1858 in France. He died in 1924. He used the pseudonym of H. Gray to sign his poster designs. For more racy subject matter, he signed his work with the pseudonym of Orivois (meaning "spicy"). He began his career designing magazine illustrations and covers. He turned to designing posters during the "poster craze" in Paris during the 1890s. He is particularly known for his bicycle posters. [Source]
