would-be people's queen

candle in the window
for the son of a widow
now left orphaned, save

for a bejewelled crown
whose issue once secured
now stands a former flame

for want of royal surrogacy
where an uncle demurred
now twice an heir found

candle once in the wind
on a window sill still, sits
once, always the people’s princess
