Oh here I sit all alone

on my wibbly wobbly throne

no jesters, no jokers, no serfs around

no luck, no lady, no heart to be found

The crown on my head weighs more than lead

the heavy hem of my cloak

makes little frogs croak

Nothing but my own words to eat

nothing to wear for my blistery feet

nothing to brighten my miserable day

nothing to do but sleep the night away

And when daylight arrives

as it must again to wake me from slumber

I rub my weary eyes and wonder:

when and why did my might turn to dust? 



Wild Violets

To me, this can be interpreted on different levels; I find it both delightful in the way it "flows" but also thought-awkening in depth of meaning expressed. Merci, Gigi. Love and best wishes,
