Princess in Cleats


A storybook princess
is limited.
Demure and quiet.
Clad in diaphanous gown,
glass slippers and tiara.
Needing a prince
to fight her battles.
No such limits
for our princess.
Cleats on her feet,
wind in her hair,
gleam in her eye,
she charges the net
and scores!

About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
