Apartment for Rent: An Original Fairy Tale Poem

Here's another poem from my unpublished poetry collection Excerpts from the Fairy Tale Files. This poem is written in the form of a classified ad.


One room, up-tower, furnished, neat.
The low, low rent cannot be beat.
Has awesome view of Castle Bay.
Installed a ladder yesterday
That’s strung with rungs of golden hair—
No other like it anywhere.
Have not seen my last tenant since
She fled and wed a handsome prince.
At Blue Rose Girls, I have a post titled Let It Snow...Let It Snow...Let It Snow: Repetition in Poetry.
You'll find the Poetry Friday Roundup over at Great Kid Books.
