Cold Mountain's Quest - Poem by Raymond Cabrera

There in my frozen milieu of our place made me,
Shiver from placid snow and how it could be
That dreary and arctic midnight snow
Over the icy twigs that thwarts the stream to flow.


As lovely as a crystal, yet a strange maiden
I really love her, and so my heart was stolen,
To prove my affection that engraved my chest
She said, “Go take the Cold Mountain’s Quest”.


I flaunt her to finish it within eventful week,
“My wish is to win your heart”, as I proudly speak.
Astonished as I am when I met her on the trail
Is she worried to me when I get fail?


It’s a dangerous trek just to attest my love,
However, a magical feeling that hovers like dove.
So she stops me just before my life reaches its end
She said that her love to me will always tend.


So we trudge back to the town get marry
But the heavy frigid snow was hard to parry
Hence, her legs get numb by too much frost,
And now my warmth hopes have gradually lost.




I need to leave her behind and seek for aid
And be back to the wintry place where she stayed
But how cruel the irony of fate could be
When the ice floor breaks, and drowned me.


I woke up from the dozen of day of slept
Someone had saved me and held me as they kept.
“I’ll wait for you, my love”, that was she said
So I abruptly leave and run away from my bed.


The tempest of snow was now serene and still
But deep in my heart, an omen is what I feel.
I started to search for her and glance on nothing
Neither her dim shadow nor a clue on everything.


Instead, I found a huge block of ice standing by
I saw her frozen body, thus it made me cry
She truly loves me and waited until she die
Now the quest was over and I shall goodbye.
