Rime of the Frostmaiden Poem

Rime of the Frostmaiden

In a realm where whispers cloak the night,
And shadows cling to the silvered light,
There dwelled a maiden, frost in her sight,
Guardian of winter, bearer of blight.

Her touch, a shiver, a cold embrace,
She dances alone, a specter in space,
With a crown of ice, no warmth to trace,
In her kingdom of snow, she sets the pace.

The mountains bow, the rivers freeze,
Under her gaze, the warmth flees,
Forests stand silent, stripped of their leaves,
In her eternal winter, no one grieves.

Yet, in her heart, a flicker of yearn,
For the sun’s kiss, to return,
To melt the walls, and let her learn,
The warmth of love, for which she'd burn.

But till that day, she reigns alone,
In her frostbitten, icy throne,
A maiden made of snow and bone,
In her cold kingdom, forever known.
Frostmaiden under the Moonlight
Frostmaiden under the Moonlight
