Princess of the Night

Illustration by:  Anne Anderson 1930's

Princess of the Night

The princess sits up in her castle height,
Watching over children within the night,
She drapes the moon with her veil slight,
With bat wings gifting her to sing of flight.

She inspires imaginations, too, to write,
Of wings and glory, demons she can fight,
For children need to see with sight,
The things their hearts bring forth to right.

Watching over children within the night,
She inspires imaginations, too, to write.
