All alone, sitting by the fireplace,
dreamful Cinderella stares at the portrait
of her Prince Charming.
She sighs and throbs
imagining to be with him,
that portrait is so evocative!
Mice and birds can’t fill up the void
only her prince could, but he’s miles away.
She’s thrilled and delighted
looking at his face.
“Oh, if I catch you!”
silently she says.
