This is a response to VC 23 Stuart 7 ("Uncle Caterpillar Wings It")...
And so we continue with the stories of love, guilt, requital, and revenge that make up THE BODY BESTIARY.
In the last contribution from the B.B. (VC 23, Stuart 7 - John, can you make the necessary hook-ups please?) we saw the birth of the daughter of Moonlight and Princess Waterfall. This child's name is Moonlit Lake. Now in this poem, Moonlight is gone, chased away by the soldiers of the antogonist of this world, The Duchess of Moisture. The Princess is alone with her daughter, who is now a young girl.
The first two stanzas describe the loneliness of Princess Waterfall and her relationship with her daughter. The last stanza presents a warning of the disasters to come. This warning is heard by Possum, who is able to hear the warnings conveyed by the elves, who have been enslaved deep in the earth by the Duchess of Moisture.
The poem is called "The Tapestry of Consequence: Princess Waterfall Seduces Her Daughter; Possum Hears The Elves Enchained in the World Below." As usual, you will want to expand the text field to get the full lineation of the poem. Enjoy:
