Once Upon A Time

October 17, 2019


Once Upon a Time
there was a woman.
and she lived.

Prince Charming never thundered
on his mighty steed from a castle
over the hill to bend on one knee
with a glinting ring to place cool
on her work-hardened hand.
But she lived.


Hungry birds knew her home
when the snow was deepest.
Coughing invalids held her name
in their hearts.
Lonely travelers found hot meals
and a warm bed.
Crinkled cheeks and cloudy hair
recognized the sound of her steps.
And she lived. Yes, she lived.
