A Disney Fairy Tale--By Lanette Kissel--United States

A Disney Fairy Tale

Fantasy versus reality.
Real life always appears to pale,
when compared to the wonderful splendor
of a Disney fairy tale.

Simply throw in a villainous witch
and her dark and dastardly deed.
Then save the day with a handsome knight
upon his powerful steed.

He arrives to fight the dragon
with breath of fire and blazing eyes,
in order to save the lovely maiden
and cut the villain down to size.

The hero and his lady,
after tasting true love’s kiss
enjoy a happily ever after
and a life of wedded bliss.

  1. Cute! A fun read, Lanette! Sheri

  2. Hi Lanette! Enjoyed this rhyming poem which flows pleasantly by. Fairytales are meant to distract us from the everyday problems that crop up in real life. That is why it is not only children who love them, but also grownups. // paul

  3. if only every story ended that way...

  4. Lanette, I loved your poem because I too love fairy tale endings and this reminded me that my own made up fairy tale endings are so sweet to think upon. I need to do that more often and so thank you for this well written poem that reminds me to think on the good that will be if I will just keep my focus there. Because I just happen to believe with God all things are possible.
    Love, Charlene
