words I couldn’t know.
But it didn’t matter,
because my eyes still saw
that girl with a sword
who held the key to saving herself.
The heroine of the OG shojo anime, Princess Sapphire, aka Princess Knight.

Liner Notes for This Groove: This poem was created for the Weekly Scribblings post at Poets and Storytellers United, Kid Stuff. I chose to write about the TV show that made me an anime fan. Aspects of it haven't aged well (oof, the dubbing... the dubbing) but little Rommy could not get enough of the swashbuckling princess.
