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 —

a talisman

to keep time

from touching her.

Alas, to no avail.
