Crooked Street
I know of a King and Queen
who wear no crowns;
and in between halls
of stone walls
they did not meet
but in a crooked street.

I remember a Princess
who is not in a ball gown
but a ragged dress.
Still,
she met her prince
and been happy ever since.

Then there is this
quite aged Fairy Godmother
who grants wishes
of not her own daughter.
But on her hand
is not a magical wand.

These are tales I heard
that echoed
from since
the longest time ago.

I’m hoping that with this piece, you are reminded that fairy tales could happen in our lives. But oftentimes, they are so small we sometimes fail to notice them. Hope you were inspired in a way!

Now, What’s your Crooked Street?

  1. Oh my goodness! I don’t ever want to hear you say that your poetry isn’t good! I love it so much! It’s beautiful, it talks about fairytale characters but with such a twist. Thank you so much for writing this. I’ll probably one day ask if I can print it and have it framed. I love fairytales with a little twist.

    1. Now, I hear real words of appreciation from a good heart! Thank you so much for loving this one. Thank you for seeing the story behind each stanza 🙂 I hope you were inspired to find happiness in even the smallest of things! 🙂

  2. So so beautiful! And so true as well! The most powerful people aren’t always the ones in crowns and fancy outfit and you don’t have to be a princess to find your prince. Really lovely and well written. I love it so much! Please keep writing these amazing poems!
    Thank you for writing!!
