White Queen ~ A Poem by Roxy Whalley

White Queen ~ by Roxy Whalley

She blankets the world in a white shroud,

turning sharp edges into rugate shapes.

The stuff of the earth, disguised by white crystals.

What lies beneath the rounded mound.


With the wind, she swirls and dances,

With the suns rays, she melts into the rivers.

In a humans hand, she becomes a hardball,

flying through the air at its target.

Driven upon she turns icy and slick.


She has many faces and comes in many forms.

In Alaska, she has many names.

Her appearance can be welcomed or feared,

She will always be female in my mind,

Capable of soothing the soul, and easing the eye with her beauty,

or expressing rage and throwing icy daggers.


Like a mother, she can bring life,

but if disrespected,

she can also take it away.
