Princess Bob

lovely and fair,
the princess bob sits
by the window
of the tower
in the castle
and i stare.

princess mine
golden glances
on the fields
on the town
on the people all around me and
sometimes so very near
that i can feel his gaze divine.

princess inaccessible,
come down!
i am saving all my happiness
for when we spend
our summer smiles
picking peaches
on our horses,
gator-baiting in your moat,
and after twilight
we might even kiss!
or do other things
which are guessable.

you sit in the sky
alone with your dresses
and people and fields and fathers ignore you
but i adore you!
i sit with you all night
and don't get tired.
