Let me be the Princess #dVerse #Quadrille

In this scary flick
can I be a Princess?

Every year
let me wear pink

and I’ll carry your
pretty pumpkin head
as the sun begins to sink

and a flame will rise
inside your
perfect pyramid eyes

dispelling evil spirits
with a wink

Written for dVerse where De Jackson asks us to write a Quadrille poem of 44 words with the prompt word: Scare

Photo: me
When I was a little girl, I always wanted to dress as a princess and my parents indulged me. My mother made the costume in the picture!

Fun Fact: Historically Jack -O-Lanterns were thought to ward off evil spirits which is why they were placed on porches and windowsills.
