Not all princesses are beautiful

Who said
all princesses
needed to be beautiful,
or perfectly proportioned?
Isn't a little glitter,
a little sparkle,
a pair of wings and a wand
I used to be a dragon, you know --
wild, and free, and fierce --
I think I may have lost a little something
in the transformation.
But know this:
I have pretty shoes
and long eyelashes,
and I can still fly,
still wave this magic wand
and turn all the other dragons into toads:
at least then they'll be manageable.
And who knows --
maybe one will turn into a prince!

Very creative. I love the little pumpkin head.
