wells for wishes

she was the lonely child
so quiet on the hill
her boyfriend was a Jack
and her label was a Jill
the summer spent in meadows
watching Love begin to fly
she pacified creation
with the smiles of her eyes

then one day her Jack fell down
because he never owned a crown
and Jill began to weep
for every dream that tossed her sleep
the nights would draw out long and harsh
and roles fulfilled replayed their farce
the doves would fly up in the air
yet peace was not within this somewhere…

then one day Jill found her crown
was in the last place hope would look
a title and such gold! within the pages of a book
so she crowned herself a queen
and then declared all life was cruel:
Oh Jack and Jills go up those hills!
but Jills are made to rule….
