They never tell the everyday stories

It all must be princesses, monsters, or wars

Not the quiet family, living in the woods

Making friends out of spirits

And legends

And lore

The idyllic cottage, with it’s cheerful windows

Waiting in the snow-covered woods

For the end of the day

For work to end

And family dinner to start

With conversation

and blessings

reserved for home and hearth

A castle that does not make its way

onto the pages

A happily ever after

overlooked ~ Caroline A. Slee
