Cotton candy princesses
Will dance up in the sky,
And cotton candy princes too,
Though some of them ask why
They have to dance up in the air
When they can see below
How people dance upon the ground
So freely to and fro
While they are chased around by wind
Who wants to play all day
And dances so excitedly –
He chases them away.
He steps on little toes and feet
And yips at cotton heels
And doesn’t know he trips them up
With every nip he deals.
So cotton candy girls and boys
Will flee in wispy streaks,
And wind will think how fun it is
To dance with such techniques.
And so they’ll run away from wind
Until they all turn pink,
And laughing they will go back home
As sun begins to sink.
When cotton candy princesses
And princes go to sleep,
Outside their door, the wind will dream
Of dancing with his sheep. Copyright 2013 © Sonya Annita Song
