Queen Emma

Along the castle wall is a shadow
a slender figure with long hair
steel pointed crown on her head;
it is Queen Emma in her lair.

She calls her dependents Peasant Crows
one crow is known as favored:
wears crimson at the Queen’s request;
her Victorian gowns impeccably tailored.

Quinn is the favored Peasant Crow
the Queen’s adopted younger sister
from the mountain land Potter;
her family killed by a twister.
