Thank you, Theresa and Anne,  for the invitation to write my own “Cinderella” story.

Cinderella’s mother gave her precious blessings on her death-bed which were never forgotten
The king looking for a bride for the prince ordain a festival inviting all the beautiful maidens
The stepmother refuses permission for Cinderella to go as she did not have suitable clothes
Later the stepmother agrees she may go if she can do a simple task not once but twice

The king looking for a bride for the prince ordain a festival inviting all the beautiful maidens
There was much conflict building up but she remained good and kind as her mother told her
Later the stepmother agrees she may go if she can do a simple task, not one but twice
Her cruel half sisters cheated and made it harder still for her to be successful

There was much conflict building up but she remained good and kind as her mother told her
Cinderella does accomplish the task with the white doves that come’s when she sings a chant
Her cruel half sisters cheated and made it harder still for her to be successful
Not caring about the step-mother, husband and half sisters going without her

Cinderella does accomplish the task with the white doves that come’s when she sings a chant
Upset she goes to her mothers grave and ask to be clothed in silver and gold
Not caring about the stepmother, husband and half sisters going without her
The doves once again give her her wish and she looked beautiful

Upset she goes to her mothers grave and ask to be clothed in silver and gold
Dancing with the prince all night at sunrise she manages to escape from the prince
The doves once again give her her wish and she looked beautiful
After this continuing for a couple of days the third day the prince prepares a trap

Dancing with the prince all night at sunrise she manages to escape from the prince
One of her golden slippers stuck on the stairway in the pitch, now he will find her
After this continuing for a couple of days the third day the prince prepares a trap
He knows he will soon have his princess now with that golden slipper in his hand

One of her golden slippers stuck on the stairway in the pitch, now he will find her
Next day the prince set about to find out who’s foot fitted that dainty golden slipper
He knows he will soon have his princess now with that golden slipper in his hand
Those two mean step-sisters tried the slipper on their feet, but they were too large

Next day the prince set about to find out who’s foot fitted that dainty golden slipper
Cinderella father tells him that they keep a kitchen-maid in the house
Those two mean step-sisters tried the slipper on their feet, but they were too large
Even then those step-sisters insisted that the slipper would not be the kitchen-maids

Cinderella father tells him that they keep a kitchen-maid in the house
Putting the slipper on, perfect fit the prince recognizes the lady he had danced with at the ball
Even then those step-sisters insisted that the slipper would not be the kitchen-maids
Eventually, there was a wedding, she walks down the aisle with her stepsisters as her bridesmaids.

Putting the slipper on, perfect fit the prince recognizes the lady he had danced with at the ball

I have finished this poem with a happy ending, but if you have ever read this story it has a terrible ending, which isn’t in the interests of the younger teens that may read this.

  1. Reblogged this on I think, I say, I do and commented:
    Isn’t this just amazing? Makes me think I should give something like this (Pantoum) a try… but then again, it’s probably best that the terrific poets tackle this and I stick to what I know.

    Huge thanks to Elsie for responding to our invitation to our Cinderella Anthology Project. The excitement is growing. Do check out the guidelines after you enjoy this poetry. 🙂

    • Thanks for commenting, yes it is a bit grim at the end. As a child reading the Grimms version I never understood it, it was completely different to some of the other versions, I have just come to realize why I never went back and read it again.
      Happy day smiling.

      • Thanks Anne for the reblog. You should try writing some Pantoum poetry, it’s a bit hard at first, but like everything the more you write them the easier it becomes, it’s a nice challenge to writing poetry.
        I will check out the guidelines again. Is there something I have missed please tell I won’t mind.
        Thank you for inviting me to have a go, which I enjoyed very much.

      • Haha, I kinda like the Grimm version. Those differently attractive sisters had no fairy godmother to help them. They even had to cut their own toes and heels off to get a shot at happiness. Hell, you gotta admire that.

      • Yes, you are right, the things some people do to get what they want. I don’t think in this modern world it would be appreciated if I wrote a story like that. I might be taken to court by someone objecting, for corrupting children’s minds like that.

    • I agree with you, there is enough sadness in the world these days, it would be nice if we could have a happy ending in everything, that would be what you call a happy world. Okay, let’s smile, that will never happen.
