Basically, this was is the first fairytale poem that I have ever made, and its...long, but I like it because it's the kind of fairytale that is overrated, cliche-d yet still simple. Sometimes, love is simple. It doesn't need a twisting plot, or a heart-wrenching edge. All it needs is a knight, and maybe a dragon or two:D
THE PRINCESS, THE KNIGHT AND THE LOVELY DRAGON.
A little princess lost in the woods
An owl on the birch tree giving her a hoot
She wanders around with much uncertainty
With only mushrooms and shrubs to keep her company.
She runs around desperately, trying to get out at night
Jump, skip, run, anything but to fly
She watches each day progress into darkness
Just like her life now devoid of laughter.
One day in the sparkle of the early sunshine
She awoke to find a long stretch of lines
crisscrossing over one another
They seemed to for a line that led to neither
She followed it with a hopeful heart
Imagining knights with valour and calm
And suddenly, without any warning
She burst out of the woods, the magic behind her humming.
A dragon approached her then
its scales gleaming with a shine of ten
With its monstrous tongue and golden eyes
That leered at her and looked not nice.
Then, out of nowhere, a young knight appeared
with a silver shield mirroring the image of a bird
He slashed and wacked and beat it down
Overcame the beast and made it frown.
Thereafter, he brought her back to the capital,
gave her silk clothes and golden bangels.
And showed her to the ball that day
for he loved her so to make her stay.
So, that night she went and danced with the prince,
it turns out that he was only an arrogant twinge,
with no character, backbone or whatsoever
She went back to the knight with a heart so weathered.
The next day, the knight brought her around the town
showed her his friends, the sheep and the cows
She enjoyed herself so much more
She fell in love with the dragon-slaying boy
She told him thus but he refused
For she was of royal birth so he can't pursue
As much as he wanted to be with her
He'd rather her have a happy life here.
It was raining one day, pouring greatly
The princess was out gathering wild raisins.
She slipped down a path into a hole,
where it was dark, murky and cold.
The knight had started to worry with distraught
the princess couldn't be anywhere far off?
He searched and scoured the whole open area
Only to find nothing and so, he settled in prayer.
And then he felt it, the tug in his heart,
a rope that could lead him to his love
He followed it in preciseness and much fear
That something should befall upon his beloved dear
But alas, he saw that she was safe,
just trapped there beneath the rock-like haze,
He pulled her out and brought her home,
for he hath never felt his heart react such so.
Back in the cottage, where she dried
the princess could scarcely believe her eyes
The knight had fretted about her much
He must love her so, to think so far.
She told him then, that she wouldn't leave
him behind, if she had to give
her heart to anyone in the world,
to him she will trust, the sone of an earl.
The knight knew then, that this was it
He couldn't flee from their destiny
So, they got married by the sparkling waters
And so they lived happily ever after.
