The Princess Who Ate Candy

A Princess is in her garden,
hiding in the flowers,
the slave girl must find her,
For the King demands,
she be brought to him at once.

The Princess,
knew she was going to be in trouble,
for her dirty dress,
and tangled hair,
The Ice Cream melted as she ate,
As much as she can eat,
The rest remained stuck to her dress,
in the raw sweaty heat.
The lolipops she did eat,
so sugary and sweet,
left her with a purple tongue,
and orange colored teeth.

The slave girl was becoming annoyed,
she had better things to do,
and she callled to the Princess,
Stop your hiding foolishness!

At that moment the Royal Prince approached who are you screaming for?
The slave wished to answer,
I love you forever more,
the slave girl felt,
weak at the kness,
He was so handsome,
she could hardly breathe.
She ran away,
afraid of not knowing,
what to say.

The princess knew she must face the king. He told her she can have no sweets. She had a feast of candy and assorted treats.

She gave up hiding went in the castle,
to confess, covered in flowerpetals
sticking to her sugar-covered dress.
Her face smudged with chocolate,
her hair tangled up in leaves from hiding in the garden trees.

The King smiled.
He was not even mad, he simply laughed,
and said "see to it she gets a bath".

My name is Isabella, My life is something wonderful. I am a person who is truely all wild about life. My passions are fine dinning, classical music, world travel, art and design, my greatest passion of all is freedom. My favorite authors and poets include but are not limited to Lord Francis Bacon, Hafiz, Omar Khayam, J.M.Barrie,Shakespear,Dr.Seuss, Lorca,...the list is so long. My ultimate goal is to transcend the dead, by that I mean become one of the Legends, while I'm still living. On get readers who only read the dead poets to be all excited over me. Yet my immediate hopes is to click at all in the poetry scene, to be loved, by all who read me. That is more to me than chocolate covered strawberries. That is more to me than ice cream with crunched up cookies. Yet,I crave honesty,criticism helps me perfect my artistry. Compliments are thrilling and my greatest hopes is to be only a pleasure to read. Welcome to my world of Poetry I will be opening up to you with all I have inside of me. Here is my heart in word shape, from a passion for life I can not excape. more…
