The Princess And The Jungle Boy

Long ago,
There lived a princess in her castle,
Who had a pretty face
And eyes and manners to match;

One day she left her castle,
And got lost in the jungle;
There she met many a wonders,
And suddenly her eyes met someone;

A jungle boy,
With dark black eyes
And a body like ivory,
A true marvel of the nature;

At first sight of the princess,
The boy melted- like ice in a hot summer day-
All at once he felt something deep inside,
It was nothing but love at first sight;

As the two approached near,
To see each other up close and personal,
The castle guards, searching for the princess,
Came rushing in, taking away the princess with them;

The jungle boy ran hard, but the stallions were faster,
The princess on her way back looked behind,
To catch a glimpse of the boy, but the boy faded away,
In the fog and dust that were left behind;

After the princess, nothing else left for the boy,
Only but the memories of the momentary past,
His days spent searching, his nights, dreaming,
The boy could not overcome, his love for the princess;

And one day was caste away,
Looking for her over the ridge of the castle,
The princess might have also felt something,
But never said a word afterwards!
