Cinderella - Alfred Starr Hamilton

This wonderful poem from The Boston Review:

Which also includes a web-only interview with Chris Martin and a review of Carson and Bang, and more.


Alfred Starr Hamilton
Cinderella


 were you ever a little reindeer
 out in the clear
 not too tiny a reindeer
 but a little reindeer
 and the way was clear

 were you ever a little reindeer
 out in the rain
 not a big rain
 but a little rain
 and the way was clear

 and you had your umbrella with you
 not too big an umbrella
 but a little umbrella
 and your name was Cinderella

 wonderfully you were invited
 to a ceremony
 not too big a ball
 but a little ball
 and you had your umbrella with you
