snow wht shadowed
to Snow White and the Prince by Delia Sherman )
Did you think that I found you
by chance, Maiden?
Did you believe
I was drawn to your crystal casket,
like a hummingbird to its nectar,
by the allure of ruby lips,
the gaze of azure eyes?Her apple froze you fast —
to keep time
from touching her.
Alas, to no avail.
