Aristocratic Child

Beyond the hills White Mountains course the sky.
And reaches up to heaven it beseems.
In powder blue the fluffy clouds float by.

Oh, little child, who innocently dreams.
True beauty standing gracefully upright,
Adorned in velvet kissed by satin sheens.

With ribbons, flowers, laced with pearly white.
The hat she wears boasts eloquent designs.
A picture perfect child to bring delight 

Her shaggy little dog whom never whines.
With faultless manners always sitting near.
Oblivious is he to her bloodlines.

Aristocratic child in her own sphere
Imagined she was riding with her prince.
Enjoying whims and dreams without veneer.

She happily lived hoping ever since.

    I'm going to have to change the last line...from >>.She lived happily with hope ever since.<<< to She happily lived hoping ever since. The rhythm seems better to me. Oops! I don't think it changes the meaning...I hope.

    Dane Ann, at first I was picturing the little boy blue. It's a famous picture of an aristoratic boy standing in his blue outfit (not sure its name) but it's interesting to see how you made this about a little girl so innocent in her sphere of riches. by the way, I really felt happy that you liked my footles. I was not sure about them because I saw people doing the contest different ways. So happy you approved!
