Day Twenty-seven: Prompt-a-Day for National Poetry Month – fairy tale rivers…

Fairy tales make rivers run with wine only to make us remember for one wild moment,
that they run with water. ~G.K. Chesterton

Take a fairy tale from your childhood and turn it into a poem. Allow magic into your poetry, and feel the giddiness of exploring the archetypes that inform you. For extra credit, have the setting be our modern world and the characters just like you and I.

I suggest that you post only the beginning two to four lines of your poem to give us a taste of where you’re heading before you close the door to the revision room.
