Princess Scruffysix, meet Princess Mellowtwelve

Princess Scruffysix talks teetertotters, tells diamond-dust certainties,

uses body English all bounce with hopscotch hosannas,

basks expansively in the lap of being listened to

deeply, and learns from largess.

Princess Mellowtwelve

looks cameras, listens sponges of approval,

harnesses winged laughter to sedate delight in this darling

petaling of kinetic news, is surprised to discover her own

so-very-recent past.

They revel in their royal hour, their vast

kingdom in common, and their diverse dower.
