Fairy-tale Logic

Fairy tales are not just the thing of fairy tales. Sometimes they are the thing of real life. Many, if you asked, could tell their own tales of a beautiful princess on a tall mountain above a blue rushing river or a daring if a bit reckless prince making quick work of a dragon. It just takes a little spinning of the tale in a slightly different direction to see it. Poems have a way of spinning just like that, of taking those images—familiar since childhood—and rearranging them on the page.
