POEM: As Arctic Airs Sing through Northern Lands
As Arctic Airs Sing through Northern Lands
©2012 Marcus James Christian, marcusunlimited.
As Arctic airs sing through Northern lands,
there presides over that domain, the kind Caribou.
In this journey you are ushered to the lands of the high snow safely,
and you may select any cotton coat you so choose.
As your preferred level of warmth envelopes you,
you are welcomed by the eyes of the gentle creatures.
The best beast free boots are yours for the wearing.
Into a trot, they go.
The caribou disappear over a frosted hill,
just before reappearing upon your path.
Now the reigns of a sleigh are upon them,
and they are jovial about the kind pilots who will guide them.
The sleigh stops and we step aboard, as the caribou pause patiently.
What new rhythms will be shaken forth from shimmering sleigh bells as we ride?
