. . .Little Princess Dance

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


Strolling a-jumble along a monkey chain I see
Singing and trumpets-a playing a note so free.
Easy shoes and darkest blues, I sip my grashopper's tea
Watching a story of two of whom one I agree.

Simple crown oh lovely queen of twinkle moon in night
Embracing her naive princess of stardust of power and might.
Skipping, tripping, and swimming the dirt away
Scooping, looping a golden frame of half hour of day.

She kisses her freedoms of love of perfect step above
A rather rare swine of sultry sense, I seem glee.
To wipe a crumb of her delicate lips of bread of sea.
Watching her eyelash flash a queen's delight of fairy's tree.

Oh how a grumbling beast I came to be, then I look
A failing hand, a rocky land, and feasting as she took.
Roaming a secret queen's icy heart so gruesome in song
A pretty lip, a baker's quip, a thief who once begone.

Beetle a-flying along a rose petal quiet
Turtles and snow doves of night time so right.
Spilling the princess wine of green vine so light.
Sleeping yon blond hair slicing a sentence sight.

When old king and prince both saw a cedar wood
And queen so somber, sober, and willow good.
Princess a-hold of raven's secret flying if only they could.
Holding her fire a-burning his steps winking at would.

Alas, king, queen and princess sleepy gimble chairs
Rolling with storks of white with milk and melon fair.
Growing in slumber, seeking a seldom stepped my cares.
Taking her hand in eyelash grand petting quiet stomping mares.

Dear, Dear Bobbi,

I wish one day that when I am financially able to drive or fly to where you live, I can meet you, drink coffee (if you don't. I will bring mine) and I will listen to you all day long while you tell me about your life and how you are always able to forge such deep and emotional words that bless me so much.

And I am totally serious.

Cannot thank you enough for your friendship and talent.

Thank you sincerely for your warm comment.

A rhythm, a rhyme-what great stories you tell, they grab and hold my attention like an alarm bell. The next time I walk in the woods-I will remember your poem. So beautiful and surreal.

Keep writing them. Put them in your book.

Your Friend,

Bobbi Purvis
