Minuet of the Ice Fairy by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Minuet of the Ice Fairy

Ravens sing in a shrill harmony
soaring above a scarlet fiery pyre.
Sprite-lings flying dodging flakes;
seeking boughs of red cedar cover
Ice faeries waltz a loving minuet
on a clear ice crystal snowflake.
goblins dressed in Easter attire;
soft kisses with lemonade pouts,
awaiting many passionate desires
as love of a cherished mystics soul.
Whilst opaque diamond stars weep
during that icy passionate dance,
crimson blood shall rise and steep
flashing tease of an ocular ellipse.
Peeking full moon in pastel clouds
edge of a gnome's rapaciousness
inhale a pinkish twilight sun-dog,
dance a Minuet with the Ice Fairy.
