In the faraway kingdom of my imagination; My land of make believe thrived on one Disney creation. Join me here; you’ll never spend a more enchanting ev’ning. Over there is Cendrillon. Step lightly. Hear her singing? Terrible Lady Tremaine rules missy with the sweet voice; Loving parents died apart leaving the maid with no choice. Stepsisters waste their lives here…bungling, fumbling Drisilla And big-toed Anastasia—so vile; so like their mamá. Royal orders bid damzels here to heed the regal ball; Prince Charming’s quest to find a wife would dawn after nightfall. Grandeur turned the ugly heads of two secretly scheming To wed the purple crowned prince who would one day be their king. “Sweep the halls and flight of stairs”, Cendrillon’s stepmother snaps. “Do the dishes, light the fire, bring us warm robes for our laps; Wash the windows, dust the chairs, do the laundry, knead the dough. Finish in time for the ball…find a gown and you can go.” In my fairy tale castle one couple waltzing caught my eye. “So this is love”, he was saying as they passed me by. He swept her off her feet and new happiness stirred me too; All I was wishing came true. The prince of my dreams is you. “And they lived happily ever after.” Caryl Ramsdale Copyright © 2011 All rights reserved.

    This is a very creative way to tell a familiar story. Loved it. My daughter and my sister are collecters of everything cinderella, especially videos. You wouldn't believe how many different versions of the video there are.

    Hi Steven, I wrote this poem and dedicated it to my hubby in celebration of our upcoming August anniversary. He hasn't read it yet. I'm saving it to present to him in private after our anniversary dinner. He's my Prince Thanks for the praise sir. Caryl

    Carrie: Thank you! I'm particularly fond of the music of Cinderella. "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes" and "Bibbidi, Bobbidi-Boo" lighten my heart so much I want to I love everything about this classic and watch it all to often I guess. Blessings, Caryl
