The Royal Wedding

Once He sent to earth,
A pretty princess in red,
To be cared by Mother,
In a nourishing soft bed.

From handsome princes,
She wished to choose,
A groom who’d love her,
Like morning to a dew.

First suitor soon arrived,
Made her blossom soon,
She began to love him,
Like stars to the moon.

Alas, it never happened,
In a trice, he was away,
But arrived, the second,
Scorching lonely days.

He possessed a warmth,
But she withered away,
But her prayer He heard,
And short was this stay.

For a breath of relief,
There remained no time,
With a shower of love,
Arrived the next in line.

All her scars of before,
He washed very quick,
His cool touch, she liked,
But even he didn’t stick.

With a strong icy breath,
He made her to shiver,
A white blanket, he gave,
No stop to her quivers.

No prince did stay long,
All wanted her as bride,
She died; reincarnated,
But still the princes tried.

She asked Him future,
A wedding was in store,
Soon she was betrothed,
Wife to the princes four.

Written for Thursday Poets’ Rally, Week 33, November 18th to 24th.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
