In a Frozen Bed

In the land of beauty
In the realm of nature’s grace,
The mountain peak
Touches the sky,
Where the snowy beds ascend.
The mount adorned in pristine white
Where a jewel in the crown basking in golden sunrays.
An icy embrace where
The harmony does sleep.

A tapestry of snowflakes
Delicately spun,
Glistering like diamonds,
Well beneath the rosy morning Sun.
An ethereal landscape,
Untouched and pure,
Where dreams unfold and hopes endure.
The mountain whispers
The stories of love and hatred
Conquerors and sages
A silent witness of battles fought and lost,
A testament to the human spirit’s utmost.
The wide bed of snowflakes,
A miracle of nature,
A treasure so fine.
Through the age
I have stood serene,
A emblem of beauty
Eternal and pristine of my love’s smile and tears.
