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.”



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
