COME AS YOU ART

What can poor Ms
Light Verse wear to
Queen Poetry’s
Magnificent
Grand Ball?

She owns no gown,
No fancy shoes —
A smile, a wink,
And style — I think
That’s all.

    Since composing COME AS YOU ART, I came across the following line from Aschenputtel (Cinderella) as recorded by the Brothers Grimm in the 19th century (and now I remember where the idea for this poem came from):
    the stepmother refused [to allow Cinderella to go to the ball] because she had no dress nor shoes to wear.
