Once upon a time, a girl named Lucy Day
went to the store for candy,
then she lost her way.
Her feet grew weary walking,
tears filled her eyes.
She came upon a bridge
above blue waters and ice.
A frozen castle glistened
and on the rocks below,
she saw beautiful mermaids
and ask them where to go.
They started singing a song
about hearts being at home.
With the flip of their lovely fins
she blinked and they were gone.
Puzzled, she stood there humming
the words to the melody they sang.
Then suddenly her heart was pounding
because she remembered the way.
Rushing home to tell her mom and dad
about the glorious beings she saw.
Both parents smiled at Lucy,
and they believed her after all.

I decided to play around with this and make it as much like a fairy tale in poetry style as possible. I normally use free verse and so I’m not excellent on rhyming. Any advice is welcomed. Thank you all.
