Someday

Poets get inspired by most anything. This one came to mind when, waiting for an eternity  for photographic prints to be returned from a local photoshop, I was reminded of “Someday My Prince Will Come” a popular song from Walt Disney’s 1937 animated movie “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. It was written by Larry Morey (lyrics) and Frank Churchill (music), and was performed by Adriana Caselotti (Snow White’s voice in the movie).

I have a box cam’ra.
It ain’t very good
but I captured the west
as best as I could.

Then I sent off the film
for development;
it seems like forever
since that film was sent.

But I do have great hopes,
I am not naive.
Someday my prints will come,
that I do believe.
