~~ The Frost Maiden Cometh ~~   7 comments



Out in a snowdrift

No palace she keeps

In the deep chill of the winter

The Frost Maiden sleeps.

Snow Princess Asleep

Her eyes are as blue

As the deep winter chill

Her touch is as ice

She bends all to its will.


She comes in late autumn

Turning everything brown

The winter’s the cold sun

Cannot warm the ground.


With frigid wind she defiles the land

Frozen rain and snow come from none but her hand

Desolation and bitterness are her cynical smile

And she leaves none to think other than she’ll be here a while



Stay warm, all.  The Polar Vortex is upon us !

  1. This is a very nice poem, Paul! Perfect for the season. Thanks for swinging by the party! There are a lot of new faces, but not as many as last month. I think it’s the time of year. I’m going to hold the next one in January. Have fun clicking on links!

  2. Hi there! I popped over from Susie’s party! What a lovely wintery blend of images and words. Thanks!

  3. Oh this one reminded me of my childhood book of poems! So cozy 🙂 And image of the pale beauty on the snow looks Russian old style! Loved it!

  4. Lovely, lovely words and your photos are just the perfect accompaniment! Happy New Year!
