The father looked upon his daughter, now grown,
her frame, bony, Grimm, a fairy tale in motion, thin collar bones;
fingers pseudo-Grethel, sticks, knotty twigs, meant to fool the wicked
He dared to touch her hair, so long, curls and tangles,
flowing down her back, a clip to have, but can never hold it all;
like Rapunzel, letting down her locks, final rescue was a long time coming.
Regarding her face, so tender, her manner quiet and gentle,
yet Snow-White shares trait with Rose-Red, was seeking too, has found;
he mourns now, the loss of his daughter, belonging now to the bear prince.
