#NaPoWriMo Never Born #WritePhoto

nostalgia nursery

nostalgia nursery

The nursery was filled with heirloom toys and games
The aunts and uncles made suggestions for names
The curse was strong in the family, since the soothsayer
Foretold the demise of the monarchy by a betrayer
A child not of woman born would come along one day
To end the lineage of oppression by which royals play
Centuries have past since the spell had been cast

No heir to the throne has left the dollhouse and rocking horse alone



This poem is inspired by the photo by Sue Vincent, who shares a prompt each Thursday in The Daily Echo.  Join writers from around the world to create your own story or poem.
