The Princess’ Studio

There were spingles and spangles
And wonderful things
There were twinkles that dangled
From octopus rings
Organza and lace and a taffeta shawl
With looking glass baubles reflecting it all
Bottles with essence of giggles and whispers
And secrets not even disclosed to your sisters
A tumble, a jumble of cushions and throws
Powder-puff balls to powder your nose
There were feathers and fancies and filigree frames
Holding pictures of people with ridiculous names
Toys from a childhood only just gone
With lingering laughs hanging gleefully on
Outside, looking in was an envious moon
Who longed to slip in and relax in the room
But the walls and the windows would never relent
To the wiley old words of this silvery gent
Their job to protect on the coldest of nights
The princess asleep amidst all her delights
There were spingles and spangles
And wonderful things
There were twinkles that dangled
From octopus rings…
I was bored! So, I decided to write this poem.

I was inspired by Basia-AlmostTheBrave's picture, [link] called "A Painting Princess' Studio."

Many thanks to her for creating such a wonderful piece of art.

This is adorable, but I feel bad for the moon. I bet you had a blast with all the things in her room. :D
All your poems have such nice flow, and I love all the imagrey! (I can't spell.)

Yeh, I'm never quite sure where the 'octopus rings' came from ... but when I looked at the picture the words just sprang into my mind and stuck there. I'm sure there must be a sneaky octopus ring in there somewhere though!

Thanks for the kind comment - its much appreciated!
