Contest Description

In Genesis 17:15, Abraham was commanded by the Lord God to no longer call his wife Sarai, meaning "contentious", but Sarah, which has the meaning of princess.  Sarah is a name that has held itw own in the popularity stakes and this is helped by its meaning, for parents like to think of their daughter as their very own princess.

Please write a poem about a beautiful BABY called Sarah and include the word princess MORE THAN TWICE.  Even more than in the poems you wrote of Shantelle and "stone", make the word of princess obsessional - one which will be held forever in your readers' minds so that they never forget that Sarah and princess are one and the same.

(I wanted to give an example after writing this, so quickly got going to give you one.  Mine is called "Sarah", dated today - 12/4/2020,  and I made it fun, as you will see.)


What to Submit?

One original poem highlighting Sarah's meaning of "princess".

Any form is acceptable.
