"Soon we must all choose between what is right and what is easy." - Dumbledore (Goblet of Fire)


The cold though soft mistress of snow and ice
Utters secrets in naught but a whisper.
She knows I listen, thoroughly enticed
My eyes drift to her kingdom of winter.
Leaves no longer linger in the old trees,
Flowers of the ice fall to earth with glee.
Green blades of summer masked in a deep freeze;
Snow sparkles under a gray canopy.
The swirling fogged sky holds stories of old,
It has seen destruction, it has caused pain.
Now the sky rests, its soul to sleep is sold.
Of what it what it dreams of, the question remains.
Now I must sleep, flee to that land of dreams,
As the Mistress descends, snow and ice gleams.

i fixed this poem up, and am awaiting your comments! please post what u think! Oh, by the way, i was inspired to write this poem one night when i looked out the window and the snow was falling so gracefully, the sky was a beautiful swirling of mysterious gray, and it was just so amazing that i wanted to write something there and then. it really was time for me to get some sleep though.
