This poem was written the day princess Diana died.  It took me 15 minutes to write it and to this day I still like it.

A princess died today.

The world is in dismay.

A princess died today.

We each mourn in our way.

In the fairy tales I learned,

Sitting on my mother’s knee,

Princesses lived forever

And they lived happily.

In this story our princess

Made prisoner by the press

Tried to get away

And met with eternity.

She was the queen of hearts,

Gifted with grace and beauty.

She believed in doing her part

To care for humanity.

A princess died today.                                                         

Freedom finally greets her way.

So great was her cry for mercy

That God took her away.
