princess

castle-1584646_960_720

mo’s the oldest, loudest voice
when we played games,
she got first choice.
j & i got second best,
d
eirdre got to do the rest.

mo played princess,
high & royal
w
e played subjects,
loving, loyal.
d
eirdre played, somewhat defiant,
ogre, monster, beast & giant.

 j & i played dukes & knights,
saving ladies in sword fights,
we beat till death the enemy
(which bruised and
battered sister de)
with sleep the reward
for our toil.
mo played princess,
high & royal.

sleepover

moon night-1478122_960_720when the moon was little
she’d peek through our
window at night
and we’d let her sleep over
if her momma said alright
she wore her cute pajamas
with tiny yellow flowers
she’d giggle with woo and a.k.
and keep them up all hours
now that the moon is
a grown-up
she rarely comes inside
and hardly ever sleeps over
she’s far too dignified
the woo and a.k. have
grown some too
no longer the great pretenders
but we still smile every once in a while
when the sight of her makes us remember
…..Ω
