A PARADOX IN THE ENCHANTED FOREST

One hundred years she has slumbered
A crystal box her narrow bed.

One hundred years she has waited
For a princely kiss to restore her.

At long last her prince arrives,
His form a frog, cruelly enchanted as well.

She must have his kiss to break the spell,
He needs as much from her.

So they remain, a mere gesture away
From fulfilling their mutual dream.
