Princess

By Krista Clement

Rumpelstiltskin cried
because you belong to me;
baby spun golden,
milky skin stained with roses—
eyes fished from the blue North Sea.

About Krista Clement

Krista Clement worries that her life mirrors her favorite childhood novel, Little Women. While pursuing an English literature degree she met and fell in love with a German man who now makes his career as a professor at BYU. And, like Jo, she has literary aspirations. Her short fiction has appeared in several online literary journals and she has also done nonfiction and creative freelance writing assignments. After moving back and forth between Germany and the United States the past eight years, she is finally ready to feather a permanent nest and spend most of her time homeschooling her five boisterous children in Santaquin, Utah.
