THE SNOW QUEEN

  • WHERE the wild bear clasps the ice
  • Over the hanging precipice,
  • Where the glittering icebergs shine
  • Within the sunset, red as wine,
  • Where the reindeer lick the snow,
  • To see what there may be below,
  • Where the shades are blue and green,
  • There lives, they say, the great Snow Queen.
  • Wild her eyes are as the sea
  • When northern winds blow lustily.
  • Her queenly robes are white as snow,
  • But flaming diamonds on them glow,
  • And many a precious stone.
  • Of green ice builded is her throne:
  • Polar bears her watch‐dogs are—
  • Her only lamp, an evening star.
