Rumplestiltskin's Song

A Poem By Kathleen // 12/25/2012

I sat upon a spinning wheel
I knew the warp, I knew the feel
of spinning straw into the gold
It was a secret known of old
when men knew how to be more kind,
when laughter rang throughout the air
when we could live without a care;
we lived without need to beware.
Twas then I spun my gold so fine.

His fingers reached, they pulled
I taught the turning of the gold,
I taught it to my son, my boy
He was my greatest love and joy.
Twas this I taught that son of mine.
A father and a son, spun side by side.
I looked upon his work with pride.
And with my son the world was wide.
Twas then we spun our gold so fine.

Until the king’s men marched and came;
they came to take all but my name.
They took my home, they took my wheel
They took the warmth that I could feel.
And yes, they stole that son of mine.
They chased the light out of my soul
and then the world looked flat and dull.
Unmade was I, no longer whole.
Twas then I did not spin my gold so fine.

This was well-written, and it "fit" Rumplestiltskin perfectly! I can just see him singing it!

I loved this! Such simple

I loved this! Such simple words, but they tell so much. Isn't it funny, I never thought much about Rumplestiltskin, even though he is so unique in the realm of fairy tales.

My favorite part - "And with my son the world was wide."

Cute! It does fit Rumplestiltskin quite well. Whatever made you think of it, I wonder?

This is so cool, I love the rhythm!
when laughter rang throughout the air
when we could live without a care;
we lived without need to beware.
Twas then I spun my gold so fine.

Very nice. I'm not sure if

Very nice. I'm not sure if you watch Once Upon a Time, but it fits extraordinarily well with that version of the character as well as the original. If it's just for the original, that doesn't make me less enthusiastic about it, though. My favorite line is the same as little woman's.

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief
