I’m participating in WordPress.com’s Writing201: Poetry that runs this week and next.

Day 3 is here — and so are questions of trust, acrostics, and internal rhymes.”

 

Cinderella

Covered in grime, toiling on
Innocent, lovely, provoking jealousy
Never complaining, always hoping
Dreaming of going to the ball
Encountering a godmother granting a wish
Reveling in a gown and lovely coach
Enjoying the evening, running at midnight
Leaving a slipper for him to find
Loving, marrying, trusting a prince
And living happily ever after
