What will tomorrow bring

by Poonam

An earthy princess with clover eyes
sits atop her gray stone castle tower
the wind carries away her endless sighs
and she thinks what will tomorrow bring

destined to marry a prince unknown
from a faraway land and life so warm
in her home she lives alone
she dreads, "what will tomorrow bring"

mother and father, queen and king
force her to sit and tat silver white lace
she wishes to ride and hear the bells ring
but alone she wonders what will tommorow bring

of being an archer, swordman she dreams
but is told that it is far too unladylike
more fun than harm to her it seems
wondering what will tomorrow bring

the man to whom she will be married
lives in a land with fun and merryment
wondering how her life will be varied
she thinks what will tomorrow bring

the bells ring and the horses bray
and young man with matching clover eyes
looks to the tower to see and say
whom and what will tommorow bring

married and going home to a free land
a princess and prince walk hand in hand
a perfect and joyful life, they sing
is what tomorrow will bring
