a most watery waltz
the spell midnight halts
godmothers and green scales
blue fairies and fish tails
floating on familiar chords
washing up on salty shores
in tangled gardens lovers meet
charming princes whisper sweet
disguised maidens find new worlds
passion springs then tension swirls
dive in deeper chapter by chapter
swimming and sweeping into two ever afters.
