Broadway Tower, Cotswolds, England, by Newton 2 from Wikimedia Commons

 I'm participating in Mary Lee Hahn's Common Inspiration- Uncommon Creations Poetry Challenge over at Year of Reading. This is poem #25.

“Once Upon a Time”

the day is all about blue sky
and green grass and
a few wispy clouds and
after crossing the moat
filled with hungry alligators
 i will march right up
to the smallish stone castle
lift the lions head knocker
bang on the heavy wooden door
and proclaim authoritatively
i am a long lost princess
here to meet my prince
please let me into 
they lived happily ever after…

I haven't been over to Mary Lee's post yet, Carol. This is a lovely response. As I look at the picture, I think surely there was more to this years ago. Can you imagine living in such a place. It does seem like a 'happily ever after' poem.
