Bashful – Poem inspired by Snow White

Bashful was inspired by Walt Disney’s film version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. (1937)

Bashful

When I saw her stretched across the tidy beds,

love’s potent sword struck my heart before I knew

who this lovely stranger was or one word said.

But I remained silent, as I always do.

With one bite, she fell ill on that dreadful day.

In a glass coffin, it hurt to see her lay.

I longed to kiss her ruby lips but froze.

Joy but regret: the prince woke her and betrothed.

Bashful was inspired by Walt Disney’s film version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. (1937)
