The winds silently blew against the fortress,
of ice it was wrought, and it was tall ~
beyond the towers laid the sea in a mist,
The ground cold and of snow,
of ice, of the arctic wind blowing,
with a tall fortress in the faint distance,
of glass-crystals it looked, ever-sparkling,
the most beautiful in the world,
but of death, of avengers, it did rest,
the chain clanging, the prisoners shouting,
a doomed death in the dungeon;
Outside, wolves walked in the trees,
hidden as a shadow in the snow, hidden…
waiting for the high noon sun,
hungry, always hungry, but never in vain;
the queen was a master of enchantment,
in her spells she devised, upon her tower,
the never changing snow, swirling
in the lands known to the north as Osgroth.
