Ice Queen Princess

By: Fee

 

I have walked below the Northern pine

As snow blindness stole my very sight

I have slept beneath the tall Spruce

And prayed for sun to stop the night

 

I have shivered in the Arctic cold

The treeless land of the midnight sun

Sailed the frozen Northwest Passage

In a Coast Guard vessel on the run

 

I built a duck blind on an icy shore

Beneath a stand of ancient mossy oak

My blue lips trembled in the hoar frost

As I painfully breathed the devil’s smoke

 

I fell into the cold Atlantic waters

God and Neptune almost took me home

But some dry clothes and a tot of rum

And I was good once more free to roam

 

So you see I’m no stranger to the cold

In my blood runs veins of salt and brine

But I never met the Ice Queen Princess

Until she froze my heart and soul in time…

Fee, you haven't got the picture when she is waving with both arms? no? what a shame! This poem should melt her...
Please don't fall into the ice waters, everything shrinks there.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside
This turns me blue just to read it, Felix! I love the rugged experience and reality of your lines, coupled with the fantastic twist in the final stanza which makes me realise just what happens in the mind when the body is that frozen! : A wonderful mix of the actual and the surreal. xx

The embracing of all that is one(self) is quite inspirational within itself. A remarkable sharing I certainly enjoyed the entirity of this presentation and the gathering of words.

Continued enlightenments in all you do,

Wow--Four o'clock must be a very inspirational time for you.
This is beautiful. I have disliked the cold ever since falling through the ice as a teen. Yet there is an alluring beauty in your lines.
At least while I am sitting here warm in my fluffs.
But seriously, this is going in my favorites file.

This image rich poem reminds me of Hans Christian Anderson's "The Snow Queen". I was raised in Upper Michigan in my preteens, and it got so cold there, that we thought we were in the arctic. Thank you for sharing Felix. I felt the cold, and slept beneath the tall spruce, I saw the duck blind, and I saw the devil's smoke, when you exhaled. I saw you shiver from the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic ocean. I saw you on the Coast Guard vessel being given dry clothes and sip of rum. This is one that should be published in every magazine you can think of, it is that good.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Glad I never had to experience the cold that you must have faced. Winter in Germany was no cake walk but it pales in comparison.

A fascinating tale of your frigid adventures, and what an indictment against the unidentified Ice Queen Princess. She certainly needs thawing out! Very well done, Fe!
