The Romanovs And I

I take a stroll with Nicholas
Across a field of flow'rs
He talks of resignation
To a deeper, higher power
I pray with Alexandra
Falling to her knees
Begging of her loving God
To cure her son's disease
I sit alongside Olga
We ponder 'bout this life
Why innocent humanity
Are martyrs to this strife
I rule with Tatiana
'The Governess,' she's called
The guardian angel
Of the children, lest they trip and fall
I daydream with Maria
We both romanticize
I see the good within us all
Looking through her eyes
I joke with Anastasia
She lacks her sisters' grace
But with her pranks, she's first to put
A smile upon my face
I cheer up young Alexei
Ailing heir to Papa's crown
I dearly hope that he forgets
The anguish all around
--
Happy Birthday, Anastasia!
(June 18, 1901 - July 17, 1918)

Katie Odell Claim this poet

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.” ― Frida Kahlo more…
