Once there stood of stone
A castle of wondrous appeal
Trapped and all alone
Was a princess who'd made a deal.
Her mother had warned her not to
But her cries fell on deaf ears
For she believed it was all she could do
To finally vanquish her fears.
A witch had her one true love
A bargain, she said, was the only way
To give up her freedom of a dove
And become like a bird locked away.
Caged in the stone tower of high
For all eternity to go by like a snail
Her fate was sealed and decades went by
The curse tormenting without fail.
The castle finally crumpled to the ground
The princess along with it
Now all that's left is a mound
The past not remembered a bit.
