Belle is beautiful and spirited
But that ain’t a spelling error you see,
Since Beast, in my eyes
Is definitely the ‘Best’ in this movie!
A cursed prince in his castle
A story we have all read
The tale that makes little girls dream
While tucked into their beds.
He is a creative craftsman
The forgetful, loving father,
His beautiful daughter adores him
Though she so misses her mother.
There is arrogant captain Gaston
Thinking he deserves Belle’s hand
He jousts, prances and fences
But just does not understand
His blustering is just not enough
To win this young girl’s heart
Her adventurous, book loving soul
Needs her man to stand apart.
Her heart seeks a life less ordinary
Beyond her eyes can see,
But for a simple village girl
Can this dream really be?
She stumbles upon a haunted castle
Where the beast lies cursed
Surrounded by his loyal staff
Shielding the prince they have nursed.
Belle is trapped in the castle
With this beast huge and horned
Waiting for true love to free him
Deemed by the enchantress he scorned.
But Belle is young and fearless
Like the mother she knew not
Though the Beast is angry and fearsome
She fights with all that she has got.
How does the story go?
How does she love this creature?
This monster who seems to have
Absolutely no redeeming feature!
Watch B&B for it’s magic
And of course the STELLAR cast
It will weave a web around you
That I know is sure to last.
Watch it for the music
And people who love to dance
And the charming, gossipy village
It is so Vive la France!
It did have some gay moments
That sadly had to be cut
You cannot make a film these days
Without folks wanting to punch your gut!
