This is a poem I had to write for my English class this year :3
It's basically a poetry rendition of a Fairy Tale called The Wild Swans. The assignment was to retell the story, but from only one perspective, and there was a rhyme-scheme we had to follow {{ A A A A B C C C B, and each stanza had to have different rhymes for the As and the Cs and they had to have a certain number of syllables O__O Confusing I know >__< }}

Anywayssss. Here it is :3



Here she sits in silence, until
The day comes that she does fulfill
The task given her, with great skill
But any word she speaks will kill.
Doomed to not utter any words.
Her brothers, hated by the witch
Were no longer princely and rich,
Turned to swans, sent to a new niche.
She’s mute to save those birds.

The swans bore her across the sea,
The lasting daylight was the key;
By night they had humanity.
The rock between was their safety.
Doomed not to utter any words.
In the air was a castle cloud,
But wait, now it was tall ships, proud.
The fairy’s home, ever changing shroud.
She’s mute to save those birds.

In a cave she made her lodging.
As she slept the fairy did sing
“There is a way, you see, youngling
To save your brothers, now flying.
But, listen! You must not speak words!
Shirts you must make of nettle
Picked by bare hands, it’s no petal.
It will sting like cuts from metal.”
She’s mute to save those birds.

The beautiful girl set to work,
But her job had not one good perk.
She labored at her job, like clockwork.
To make the curse-break nettle shirts.
But doomed to never utter words.
For if she were to speak, she would
Pierce each of her brother’s hearts good
And they would die where e’er they stood.
She’s mute to save those birds.

But here came the King’s hunting troupe.
By the girl’s looks he was a dupe.
He offered for her to regroup
And live with him in the IN-group. (( haha xD Forgot about that part. ))
But doomed she was from speaking words.
Beautiful, mute girl grew upset;
Her face grew pale and her eyes wet.
A green room with her things the King set.
She’s mute to save those birds.

She was happy, and would be Queen.
But the archbishop thought her unclean
And to the pretty girl was mean;
Accused that her witchcraft he’d seen.
In self defense, she said no words.
She’s sentenced to burn at the stake
But one more shirt she has to make.
In her cell she worked for their sake.
She’s mute to save those birds.

The animals loved her dearly
And helped her in the cell dreary.
Done with the shirts she was nearly,
But she could see her end clearly.
Still she didn’t speak any words.
She neared the stake now, almost done
With the shirts of anti-cotton.
She’s almost done with the last one.
She’s mute to save those birds.

At the last minute she throws them,
Nettle shirts over her brethren.
In the birds’ places stood the men,
All handsome, who write with gold pens.
And finally she may speak words
Atop the stake a white rose grew.
Of the beautiful girl’s curfew,
Was the evidence, that all knew;
Brothers no longer birds.
