April In Fairy Tale Weather

oh, she should not stand in a pearl light
said the petulant seeing as how it beaded
her golden hair

and they rearranged her dress so that
it no longer reflected the blue skies anywhere
and tied the sash crookedly

and saw that her eyes were gazing far way
from this melee and filled with lilies
towers, something, they could not say

but it made them irritable.
then she was driven away
into the far woods

and left to pray
for whatever sustenance there was.
but the blue skies were near

and berry bright, the clouds
and nothing loud, obstrepersous
came near her then.

with God for friend;
the evening star.
the cooling waters.
