"Fiery Summer courts Icy Winter"
By Jaylin Wytchwood and Marina Ramer
Winners of a 1000L Studio Sidhe Gift Card
On an Enchanted day in autumn
Fiery Summers eyes beheld
what was never seen before.
Icy Winter, new and fresh
covering the land with her frosty beauty.
So strange she was, so fair and tender
his heart went soaring high, and upon
wings of summers ray,
He went down to lay eyes upon the icy maiden,
turning fresly laid snow to water again, accidentally.
Her frozen eyes saw the fire fall and
watched Fiery Summer regard her
works, and melted them, and so she was angry.
Cold and loud like Winterstorm her voice was,
"What dares you burn my work, my snow, undo
my craft, delay my winters reign?"
Fiery Summer only smiled, for he has heard
what never he had heard before, her voice.
And love took his heart forevermore.
He knelt down and took her icy hand in his.
"Fair winter maiden, i am just the humble
summer, but my heart burns true...
Fair maiden, i need and... love you!"
Icy Winter regarded her suitor with wonder,
for only coldness ruled her heart
Long she stood there,
looking into Summers eyes,
estwhile her cold heart melted, and she
saw the fiery prince`s love,
strange and wonderful to her
Summer and Winter
Fire & Ice
Married in love, and they say,
since that moment,
Summer and winter changed in Enchanted.
The winters mild and friendly
The summers breezy and airy.
as one completed the other.
