Pretty
little princess
escapes to the deep seas
loses herself willing captive
Alice in Wonderland
reigns over sea
creatures.  

She's loathed
to leave our world
us who live in sadness
absorbed in endless work no play
beauty has lost meaning
fantasies gone
no joy.

Someday
she'll be grown up
to smell the red roses
stare enchanted at the blue skies
laugh with joy and freedom
in love with life
with us.

Although you didn't bring it up, but this poem brought to mind the many fantasies the very young retreat to where they can avoid being cast into an adult world that they have a difficult time understanding. Yout last stanza cinched that thought for me.

"Someday
she'll be grown up
to smell the red roses
stare enchanted at the blue skies
laugh with joy and freedom
in love with life
with us."

thanks Jerry, these thoughts come easy to write when I look at my granddaughter's photos during my recent vacation home
