Birds can represent the fluttering, darting thoughts of intuition. This is why little birds helped Cinderella help herself.

The world wide Cinderella story resonates for many reasons.  In countries as diverse as Canada, Ireland, Zimbabwe and India little miss dressed-in-rags gets the short end of the stick from her step mother. And in every place where her story appears, our gal gets the goods in the end! Score one for the underdog, Cinderella!

Here's the story of a small girl who shivered with cold. Once upon a time, a wee lassie named Sophie put on her fairy dress and sparkly shoes. She wore them right to preschool, because she so loved to pretend that she was a princess. Alas, the season had changed and summer ended. Sophie shivered in her fairy dress, and her poor little feet had raised marks from the shoes. So, she did what all sensible children do in the post-home era. She went to her cubby, dug out a comfy pair of sweat pants and fluffy pink socks, and changed clothes. "These will keep my wegs warm!" she declared. And a catcphrase was begun! You go girl!

Cinderella, Cinderella, night and day it's Cinderella. Except at school. The fairy tale is becoming an endangered species!

Two princesses by
the other Emily, age 5.
Cinderella #365 Five Original Versus by Rachel Hope Crossman
Cinderella, dressed in yella’,
Went upstairs to kiss her fella.
Made a mistake, kissed a snake...
How many doctors did it take?
Cinderella dressed in red,
Got right up and out of bed,
Cooked for the King, dropped her ring,
Hoped he'd find her magic bling.
Cinderella dressed in blue,
Ran away and lost a shoe,
Despite her sisters’ cruel laughter,
She’s the girl the Prince ran after.
Cinderella dressed in green,
Went upstairs to meet the Queen,
She curtsied, bowed, sang acapella:
Your Majesty, I’m Cinderella!
Cinderella dressed in white,
Invited to the ball that night,
One candied quince from that sweet prince—
They’ve been an item ever since.
Cinderella dressed in gold,
Kissed by the Prince, who was so bold,
They got married, they grew old. 
Now my story is all told.
