With A Pumpkin

By Lucy Fox, TIWP Student

And the pumpkin shrank, 
as a pumpkin is not a carriage, 
just as I am not you,
and you are not me.
And why did the pumpkin shrink?
Because as the bells chimed midnight,
she could not face him, 
with a pumpkin,
and two lizards,
four mice,
a goose,
and a torn pink dress,
She could not face her prince.
No,
she could not. 
She must wait, 
like a proper little girl.
But excuse me,
she wasn’t all that little,
she was a woman, 
afraid to look that stranger who was her prince
met only two days ago,
as herself.
She though,
was not enough
to please him, 
with a pumpkin,
and two lizards,
four mice,
a goose,
and a torn pink dress.
