In all the lands, in all the kingdoms,
There is a Lady that is Fairest. 
With lips of blood and skin like Death
She rules and laughs and lingers
Her curses, oft desirous of tiny little princesses,
Expectant on their birthdays
To wish and dance and mingle
But to whom she's wont to visit
Ill will bodes for selfsame daughters
Who, by fateful chance and cursèd twist,
Be deemed Fairer than the Fairest."

Princess Aurora has been cursed. On her nineteenth birthday she will prick her finger on a spinning needle and fall asleep. 

Cue Robin Hood, Dream Stealer extraordinaire, and his 7 Short Men crew.

I really like this part!  I like that Rob saw the beauty in her imperfections, for being herself.
