Once Upon A RhymeCinderella dressed in blue
On the steps lost a shoe,
She tripped upon it too,
So into the air she flew.
Running in one shoe, one sock
What she saw gave her a shock.
Climbing up was Jack on the bean stalk.
Then she ran hearing twelve tolls of the clock.
Up the stalk did Jack creep,
Up to a height beyond any leap.
Before him a great towering keep.
He climbs stairs to a beauty asleep.
He hasn't been back since
He attempted a kiss, though he was no prince.
She awoke with a wince,
And her lips tried to rinse.
Neither knew of the incorporeal eye
Which did view them from the sky.
Long ago did the mermaid die
Tricked by seawitch's
The Mating SeasonThe copse was luminous and inviting.
Balmy winds shifted and the leaves swirled in tuneful coils.
He crushed the vivid ambers and yellows with grimy boots;
Feet scuffing the supple earth with each enthralled step.
She inhaled a surging gust
and spread her arms in temptation.
Her warm breeze thrust him in
and he clung to her, obsessed.
Undeniably beautiful was she, that he didn't comprehend
the brambles that curled around her legs
and the twigs that rose in the deep red of her verdant hair.
Her lips were soft and her touch bewitching,
like the undisturbed soil next to a water's edge.
That's where he laid her down
