A Grumpy Rapunzel



My hair is pure gold,
my heart true and good;
it's a disgrace that I'm locked
in a tower, in the wood.

I'm stuck in this place,
just me and the plait;
if a prince is coming
he is late for our date.

I've tried being patient
but it's too much to bear -
it takes me two hours
just to wash all that hair!

Dear Amalia
She doesn't look that grumpy and she can get out of the tower (with some help from you!) More very cute characters and I like the woodland backdrop too.
Best wishes
Ellie

Oh Amalia!
She’s so sweet!
So glad she’s escaped from the tower!
I love her plait!
Great backdrop too!
I hope her “Prince Charming” turns up!

"Just me and the plait"

😁

Adorable poem!

VeggieMummy said...

Lovely doll and poem. Looks like she's a modern day Rapunzel - she didn't need a prince to rescue her at all! xx

Liz That Skinny Chick Can Bake said...

Ha,ha! Poor thing having to wash all that lovely hair! I hope the prince shows up soon!

Patricia said...

Ah, Rapunzel, the best story ever! Every little girl is fascinated by her long golden hair, and you have made her so beautifully. I love the tower too, with its climbing roses on the wall. Cheers to the cute bunny and bird in the woods. Your creativity is wonderful, I love it all. xx

Kim said...

So cute!! When I saw the title in my feed, I had to click over and find out why Rapunzel was grumpy...well, other than the obvious. Adorable!! xo

Bonito trabajo, en el comienzo del año. Espero que durante el transcurso de él, volvamos a la normalidad, que nos impidió tener en el año anterior.

Jeanie said...

Your poems are so charming! You should write a children's book with your poems and your stitched creations!

Karen (Back Road Journal) said...

Your little Rapunzel doll is as clever as you...she managed to escape the tower. 😊

Snowbird said...

That is wonderful, so clever.xxx

Junie-Jesh said...

Your poem is so precious, sweet, and cute highlighting certain aspects of this fairy tale (your take is a modern view of what Rapunzel would do, instead of waiting for someone to rescue her, haha) Thank you for sharing your creation with All Seasons! Have an inspiring week, Jesh

I hope he turns up soon! And please tell Rapunzel, if it's an consolation, it takes me 2 hours to dry my hair ;-)

Love, Carla

Blondie's Journal said...

I absolutely love your sewn creations and poems, but this post knocked it out of the park! I so identify with Rapunzel, it does take two hours for me to wash and dry my hair, then blow dry and straighten. And sadly for me, with the Covid and restrictions, my blonde hair has grown into a sad brown shade. Egad!

Hopefully soon we will be back to normal and I hope Rapunzel stays beautiful!

Sounds like lockdown to me! Love the poem, everything!

Rosie said...

Poor Rapunzel being trapped in the tower, perhaps she will escape to join her friends in the wood:)

Conniecrafter said...

very creative with the forest and the castle, love her long hair hanging out the window. I understand one can get quite grumpy being stuck in ones castle :)

Kitchen Riffs said...

Really cute and creative! Great poem, too. Thanks!

This is adorable from root to end :) I love the tower you made too, Amalia. You are so clever!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I love this! I wish I had hair that strong )). If I were still a little girl I would wish I had that doll! I loved that story.

Love it Amalia, and that castle tower, precious! thanks so much for sharing on craft schooling sunday!

Jennifer Gail said...

I made this big post and now I don't know where it went. Cute doll sweet story.

Jennifer Gail said...

I found the post! I love her. When I was little my hair was down to my waist. Would not wear it up. Third grade hits and I see a picture in a magazine of a trendy pixie cut.
I talked my momma into getting it and I cried for days maybe weeks. Honestly perhaps a year. It looked nothing like the picture just short chopped off hair.

Louca por porcelana said...

Such fun and cute!

Susan said...

She looks beautiful, and I can tell her good nature overcomes any temporary feelings of being miffed. This is so sweet, Amalia.

She may be grumpy, but she certainly is resourceful. Great escape, Rapunzel! Thank you for sharing at Party In Your PJ's.

As a kid I always thought Rapunzel had such a raw deal, and can you even imagine how painful it would be to have someone climb up your hair!

betty-NZ said...

Your Rapunzel doll is delightful, and the castle you made with her long blonde hair is darling. Such a cute poem too, Amalia. She really is cute. I wish I had her for my granddaughters to play with. She is just adorable.
