A modern take on a Fairy Tale

Happily Never After

by Minglement


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Far away back, in enchanted ages
In days of castles and kings
Where fairy tales leap off now brittle pages
White knights in armor slayed mythical beings

But where are they now in our times of distress
Real dragons and monsters to slay
To rescue our earth, our fairest princess
I see no hero to jump in the fray

It's a long time now since good always won
When Virtue and Goodness were masters
Back in magical times when fairy tales were spun
Ending in Happily Ever Afters

February Fun Poem writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
So, February is upon us... and it doesn't JUST mean Valentines! In fact, it COULD mean a whole host of other things... but you must CHOOSE ONE. That's right! The link below will bring you to the humongous list of things for which February has been designated the official month for.

https://nationaldaycalendar.com/february-monthly-observations/

Your poetry assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to pick ONE of those items on that list and write a TWELVE LINE RHYMED POEM about it. There is no specified meter or rhyme scheme, so it's totally up to you how the rhythm will work for your month choice. However, when it's all said and done, it must be EXACTLY TWELVE lines and it must RHYME. Remember to include your chosen month designation in your author notes!!

Please keep it CLEAN (I've seen some of those choices on there) and kick it up a notch with your presentation: make us WANT to celebrate February for your choice.... and, of course, want to vote for your Feb-Fun Poem!!

Good luck and run over there and choose.....we're all waiting!! ;-) ;-)


February 26 - National Tell a Fairy Tale Day. I actually believe they are still here - They are postmen, teachers, the guy on the street, nurses, doctors, servicemen and women, children, Police, Firemen, even the bag lady who shares her meager meal - all who do large and small acts of kindness every day. Bless them everyone. They will be the ones to make us great again.
