Here's another one of my fairy tale poems. This one is about Sleeping Beauty.
A Groggy Sleeping Beauty Speaks to the Prince Who Just Woke Her with a Kiss
I pricked my finger on the wheelWhile spinning. How my head did reel,
And suddenly I counted sheep…
Then in an instant, fell asleep.
That’s all I can remember, though.
Was that one hundred years ago?
Are Mommy, Daddy still alive?
And when, dear prince, did you arrive?
You woke me with a kiss? How sweet.
Forsooth! I’m hungry. I could eat
Three little pigs, a wolf, a bear,
Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel’s hair!
Would you go fetch some burgers, fries,
A mushroom pizza—super size—
Three partridges, a roasted boar,
Two apple tarts…and one thing more:
A gallon of fresh lemonade?
Then please, dear prince, go kiss my maid.
I'm doing the Poetry Friday Roundup at Wild Rose Reader this week.
