The Beast and His Beauty

18 Nov Registered & Protected

Dear Readers

Here is a poem written for the Fantasy Artists of Etsy blog, “The Best of the Beast and His Beauty”, back in September 2010:

The Beast and His Beauty

If you find that you’re a Beauty
Kind as the day is long,
And you’re in love with a Beast
Who tends to get things wrong,
Staying with the Beast is not your duty, Beauty,
Not in the least, poor Beast.


If the Beast hasn’t broken the law,
Or dislocated your lower jaw,
Doesn’t say things that stick in your craw,
Or snore like the proverbial saw,
Hasn’t drawn the shortest straw,
And keeps a neat and tidy claw,
Knows how to read and can even draw,
And makes you giggle and even guffaw…

May you go through life together,
Happily ever after,
Hand in paw.

Poor Rapunzel

Dear Readers

Here is a new poem written for the Fantasy Artists of Etsy blog, “Rapunzel’s Riches,” back in August 2010:

Poor Rapunzel

In ancient tellings of Rapunzel
The beauty fared not well
Her witch protector threw her out
As her belly began to swell

Her golden hair shorn away
In murky swamps did she dwell
And fed her two babes at her breast
In misery none could quell

Her prince the witch had blinded
For visiting her in her tower cell
And not until he found her again
Would the witch unspeak her spell.
