Shoe Fitting

Form: Ballad Stanzas

Her face went red in angry rage
As she squeezed in her foot
A shoe too dainty for her feet
Cinders covered in soot

The other sister tried her toes
Curled tight to no avail
The delicate shoe didn’t fit
Cinders emptied the pail

‘Come,’ said the Prince, ‘try on this shoe’
Cinders bared tiny toes
The glass slipper slipped on her foot
And a Prince simply knows
