Happily, Ever 

They are still unshod, by god
-mother. (These wayward Wildling 
rebel-rogue princesses.) 

Barefoot loose and fancy 
only in their own daisy
-chained glee. Nobody’s 

waiting to be saved. No
-body’s even shaved in 
weeks and weeks. It’s 

all grown wild, like weeds
and flowers, ivy. Stars. 
Some days, they only eat 

cake. They are deeply 
enamored of dragons 
and the way the moon 

crowns their heads in light.
Sometimes they stay up all 
night, climbing trees. They’ve

built happy homes with gnomes 
and flirted faeries into fluttered 
-lash laughter. This is their ever after.

    I especially love the daisy to ivy section. Climbing trees. “fluttered
    -lash laughter“

    So much awesomeness here.
