I have no idea where this came from, and I'm not sure I want to...It's trash, I know...

The Princess

Once upon an average time,
In a distant land,
There lived the fairest princess of all,
And distant princes would seek her hand.

One might expect with an intro like this,
Perhaps a tale of truest true love,
A story of arrangements, and love's first kiss, And 'happily ever after' being the moral to speak of.

This princess would gaze by night at the stars,
Letting their light shower her body,
And closing her eyes, on the highest tower,
She would dance, and caper, to her folly.
There was a night, a warm summer's night,
When she did as she always did.
She climbed up the stairs, stepped into the moon,
And in joy, shut both eyelids.
And then she fell, unto her doom,
Tripping over her nightgown,
The servants were ordered to vacate her room,
And there was mourning in the town.

What is the purpose of such a tale?
Why would any writer spin such a yarn?
Is there a moral hid deep within,
Is there a truth to be found?

The answer is as simple as the story itself:

  =] "Servants" and "Mourning" are spelled wrong.

Now that we`ve got that behind us, I've got to say... haha. Liked the ending.

I`ve got a poem kind of like this... if you could ever find it in the mounds of writes I've got. Anywho. The concert is over, and junior high concert band is over for the rest of our lives.

Sad. I'm gonna miss it so much.

This kind reminded me of "The Raven" by... it would be pathetic if you didn't know. Poe. But still. Somehow, it put me in mind of it... I am so random sometimes. Scratch that, ALWAYS.

You need to post more. And stalk me.

  I liked this tale of woe. Not every tale, even fairy tales, should end happy all the time.

There was a moral I got out of this story ... and it may just save my life someday ... Do not wear long nightgowns, it could = your doom. (haha)

nice write, it is funny that you classed it as both deep thought and comedy, as it seems they go hand in hand quite alot. (at least in my head)

Take care,
