The Dance of Deity

by Ailuros

Age Group: Adult

Curled under the blanket of cold winter white,
The Snow Goddess sleeps through day and through night
Her body relaxes, her breath blows through the trees
No leaves can fall now, as everything sleeps
Though under the face of the silent snow queen
Life stirs in its waking, yet cannot be seen
Her eyes slowly open and squint with the glare
That the sun brings to her through the mess of her hair
Before her is standing the Young Lord of Gold
He holds out his hand for her to grab hold
With the stirring of her body, snow flies through the air
And from the hill rises her form oh so fair
She takes the God’s hand and they dance through the snow
And it melts under foot everywhere that they go
The trees lose the shine of the cold barren death
The grasses sway with the dancers’ increasing breaths
With the final pirouette, they fall to the ground
The snow has all melted; there’s hardly a sound
They lay there together in each others’ arms
And watch clouds go by as the Earth warms
Every year it’s the same, they know the routine
But every year it’s so special, like it’s never been seen
A bird can be heard calling mates through the trees
A deer fawn emerges, weak at the knees
The two dancers lay quiet, smiling but still
As life seems to blossom, as is their will
The Maiden stands softly, finding the last bit of snow
She tucks it away for the future she knows
She takes the Prince’s hand and together they sing,
“Welcome Life, Welcome All, and Welcome to Spring!”

Author's Notes: I wrote this as a Spring Poem for my Creative Writing Class, deciding to "twist" around the "conventional" poems that were always present in the classroom.
