Story Poem





A story poem
based on the following illustration
by Virginia Francis Sterrett



(Click on Image)



I have
a dream,but,
I don't
have a window
to overlook it



The Dream of Princesses

many,
so many times,
I've dreamt
that my shoe will
unconsciously
slip
from my foot...
and a prince
will wander
in a long...
long.....
long trip,
looking for:
.....ME.....

  1. I love your introductory stanza - a dream without a window - that is an amazing thought. Your take on a princess's dilemma feels very fresh and new.

  4. I agree, I love the dream without a window, and I enjoyed your foot-loose princess, too.

  5. This is beautiful, and yet, I had a moment of whimsical Amythink in which the inky whatchamacallit WAS the prince, which would make that a bad dream indeed!

    OK, had to say that first. Your choice of words is lovely, Rita, and I did love the illustration you chose. The "dream without a window" seems to have struck a chord in us all... Thanks, Amy

  7. This is a lovely story and one I think that a lot of young ladies dream. The prince "looking for ME" Very sweet.

    1. Rita, I hope you don't mind my input here. I notice that you link poems to Real Toads, but rarely return the comments by visiting other poets. We love to offer support of all who share our space, and encourage you to do the same.

    2. Kerry, I appologize for not having enough time to visit everybody. My daughter's wedding is close and I am left with no time. I do my best to visit your blogs and comment.
      One month or two, and I will be totally free and much more active.
      Thanks for accepting me among such warm members. I feel that you are one family.

      Blessings...
      Rita
