Ice Palace

There is an Ice Palace in a
Remote and northern place,
Around it the snow and wind blow
Swirling eddies, a restless whiteness
Fall and rest on statues of ice.
The pureness of a void white covers
Every object with a solemn quiteness,
Closed in this place we are times prisoner, and the howling of wolves under a canopy of a few sheltering bare and lifeless trees,
Echoes our sadness.
Against this cold Ice Palace
Gales of strong northern currents
Cast themselves up resonating like
The tide as it pounds it's waves
O bid time to stay forever with you!
My pleas fall as words on empty blank
paper, I hold a quill between
My fingers and let ink pour emotions
From my heart and soul on this void expanse, my love we are never apart
Yet never together
Ever looking, ever waiting
In our Ice Palace.
