Miranda’s Tempest


Life with Prospero,

Surrounded by sea,

Since I was three,

It was a dream,

Then a nightmare

At the hands

Of Caliban.

Stormy waves,

Turbulent heart,

When father by his art

Put the ocean in a roar,

Brought a creature so divine,

He stopped time;

In an equal game of chess,

Made me his princess.
