“I am a Princess” by Louise McCarthy

Leave a comment

I know I didn’t mention it before,

But, I needed to be certain,

That you would be my friend,

If I were not a royal.


I normally don’t wear,

For I hate when people glare,

My tiara or my fancy dress;

I like to play and make a mess.


I never curtsy; goodness me!

I never make a royal decree.

I like to be with common folk.

Excuse me but did you just croak?


You see I am a princess

And I notice you’re a frog.

Perhaps if I just kiss you once,

You’ll hop off that old log.


You’ll become a prince – that’s fair.

You and I will be a pair.

And when we’re old enough to marry,

We’ll still pretend we’re ordinary.
