Searching for a Prince

Wayne Gagnon - Maiden

“Searching for a Prince”

by Wayne Gagnon
(for A.)

Maiden, dear Maiden…
…where is your prince?
He fell from your dreams…
…(and) you’ve not seen him since.

You searched damp, swampy bogs…
…and found nothing but frogs.

You searched old country roads…
…and saw nothing but toads.

You searched forests and lakes…
…and met nothing but snakes.

Maiden, sweet Maiden…
…what should you do?
Keep open your dreams…
…your prince will find you.
