The Glass Slipper

Updated: Dec 2, 2020


It is true that the glass slipper

Is not suited to my temperamental feet

And the Prince is a bit of a heretic

But the pumpkin carriage warms my soul

And the midnight chimes my heart.

The familial clock conspires with the air to erase

All that has been and gone before

With a King crowned replacing the fragile Prince

Whose soul has been magnified to embrace

The heart of a King.
