To all the Queens out there!

I live in a palace of paper and lace.
Walls smudged with finger prints,
things out of place.

Halls filled with music, and laughter and noise.
Dress-up parades,
and tripping on toys.

I chit-chat with princesses,
dance and we twirl!
While ruling my kingdom,
my days are a whirl.

Who am I, you ask,
and whose company keep?
My title so noble,
and guests so elite?

I am a tutor
to Heaven's supreme!
I am a Mother.
I am a Queen.

  2. Thank you Heather! You are more than welcome to post it on your blog.

  3. Michelle--this is beautiful, it gave me goose bumps! I didn't even know you could write poetry!
