Lady Winter

by Meena Krish   Mar 6, 2018

With a delicate touch of her smooth finger
running water becomes crystal memories
her chiseled blue face widens with delight
as she blows kisses making barren trees quiver,

Humming an icy tune she walks this earth
soles of her feet powders the ground with flurries
glittering snowflakes create a spectacular sight
spreading chill among the living big and tiny,

An untamed sapphire grows in her frosty eyes
she extends her arms with bliss and chants
her cold breath brings an army of white knights
riding their wild horses wielding a great winter cry,

February is imprisoned within a frigid dungeon
hoping evening will escape this stormy moment
Lady Winter beams as her army raids the night
revealing a frozen morning of winter triumph.

    I love this! It's so delicate and flows so beautifully. I've noticed that you adopted the 'abca' rhyme scheme on some stanzas and others not, yet both flowed so well.

    Beautiful poem, Meena.

    Love it, Meena. Reminds me of Elsa from Frozen all grown up and transformed into Lady Winter. You’ve brought a magical, fantastical element to the season with this poem. Glad I read it while it’s still winter here. Spring is near!
