    C NOTES 

    In American slang, C notes are $100 bills. In this, the third in our song series of girl’s names in alphabetical order, C notes are the sound of music recalling the Cins of our past….such as this scintillating folk song sung by Johnny Cash (sharing credit with Cave):

    From toe-tapping folk song to glass-slippered fairy tale, Cin is transported 78 rpm, perchance to dance with a smitten Prince Charming imploring her….

    When the two sisters returned from the ball, Cinderella asked if they had been well diverted, and if the fine lady had been there. They told her: Yes, but that she hurried away immediately when it struck twelve, and with so much haste that she dropped one of her little glass slippers, the prettiest in the world, which the King’s son had taken up; that he had done nothing but look at her all the time at the ball, and that most certainly he was very much in love with the beautiful person who owned the glass slipper.

    And so you see, young ladies, all you need is a fairy tale fairy godmother and you too can meet a Prince of a fella!

        Have you tried the LOST AND FOUND? Someone may have turned him in and he’s just waiting to be claimed (if you don’t mind ‘seconds’)! 🙂

          I was thinking of your giving Mr. Ex a second chance after you lost him the first time, but that would probably make Garfield jealous….and why give a loser a second chance when Garfield is a winner who appreciates you? 🙂

      I remain envious of your foreknowledge of your post subjects for the next 23 weeks, Sr. Muse. I wander in the wilderness from day to day myself. But I rest secure in my faith that Trump will provide.

        Thanks, Ricardo, but I’m just taking ’em one post at a time without looking too far ahead, because at some point a letter is going to give me a hard time, and I don’t think Trump is going to provide any song help until the letter T, for which he has provided daughter Tiffany, which I will avoid using even if she invites me to breakfast.

      Well, here’s one person (nowhere near a princess, I might add) whose name begins with the right letter and has already met a Prince of a fella – you, Mister Muse!!

      *and on that note, I must ‘sign off’ for the next couple of months, as me and my #1 ‘Prince’ (the one with the tarnished crown) are going off to see a couple of the daughters . . .you take care while I’m away, hear?? 😉

        I’m not so sure I’m a Prince of a fella,
        But I know that Carmen is bella bella.
        Bella means beautiful, in Italian they say,
        But in any language or place, bella bella you stay.
        So have a great trip over land and sea….
        I know when you return, bella bella you’ll still be.

      Or a King Muse. I got curious about songs with the name Cindy in them and found this one.

        Don, this strikes me as Elvis putting his own spin and style on the folk song CINDY sung in my post clip by Johnny Cash & Nick Cave. The lyrics are different, but ‘re-working’ the song wasn’t a problem because old folk songs are in the public domain — therefore I don’t have a problem with it either, although I’m not a big Elvis fan (a few songs excepted). In any case, I appreciate your time and trouble.

        You are Commendable beyond Compare, sir.
        A veritable saint, I do declare, sir.
        To wish for more, I do not dare, sir….
        Except I hope your readers will care, sir.

    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.
