Morning Beauty

Reading this wonderful essay by Terri Windling, the final paragraph (involving the staying power of fairy tales and why we need them) brought tears to my eyes–

Once upon a time, they say, there was a girl . . . there was a boy . . . there was a person who was in trouble. And this is what she did . . . and what he did . . . and how they learned to survive it. This is what they did . . . and why one failed . . . and why another triumphed in the end. And I know that it’s true, because I danced at their wedding and drank their very best wine.

And am I working on a Cinderella poem as we speak? Better believe it.
