Once upon a time, right about now, in a magical land not very far away at all, a hopeful green frog waits to be kissed by a beautiful princess who can feel a pea through a dozen mattresses but is asleep anyway because she pricked her finger on a spinning wheel in the thorn-covered castle of a wicked queen and couldn’t guess her name before the clock struck midnight... or maybe she traded her voice for gold, but then lost her shoes…? Or was it the shoes she traded for two mules and a magic beanstalk?

One last note about knights and castles, if anyone reads this far:
A king rode out to revelry, with all his squires and knights.
A guard did warn these men-at-arms, "The gate falls with the light!"
And yet the sun had set before they straggled to return.
The guard allowed the first knight in, but all the rest he spurned.
For hour on hour they knocked at his tower
and asked if they could pass.
But the guard stood fast.
Then lo! Above the squires' ire and knights' declaimed disdain,
a clatter and clap of hooves was heard, a snap of whip and rein,
a horse's neigh, a courser's bay; the royal coach was spied!
The king! "The king returns! Make way, make way!" a herald cried,
"Make way for the crown!" The drawbridge down
did plunge to meet the road.
And the guard bowed low.
Through open gate the carriage sped, as knights and squires kneeled,
but as it passed, the guard took hold upon the drawbridge wheel
and spun it round, 'til iron chains did bear the bridge up high
beyond the reach of squires and knights, who raised a raucous cry.
They cursed his name to ruin and shame!
They called him dolt and daft.
But the guard just laughed.
"Well-warned you were the gates would close; you slighted my advice.
Yet even then, I raised them once. I'll not be that kind twice."
"You did, you were!" a squire squealed, "You raised it for our liege!
Why not once more, for us?" The guard replied, "Because, you see..."
"Once a king, always a king,
but once a knight is enough!"
(Writing jokes is tough.)
