Deep within her castle . The evil witch of the East reached out her soul.
Over fields of snow and mountains high she soared though not whole.
She traveled straight to her enemies camp and into Polar bears mind!
At once Polar Bear awoke not as himself but as the wicked Witch.
Before anyone could move she grabbed the child and was gone, her plan perfect, carried out without a glitch.
Poor Polar Bear fell to the ground his body was still as still
For with the child the Witch had taken , also, Polar Bear’s free will.
He lay there in a coma , this is what our precious Mae had seen.
This horror was the reason that her screams had awoken her from her dream.
Mae was inconsolable her fears were running riot
But however much she dreaded the worst, her terrors she had to quiet.
Ewen stood before her he had listened to what she had seen
There is no hope of turning back now, whispered the Winter Queen.
So with heavy heart and sickening fear Mae mounted, Vlad, her ride
Ewen and his Sister too astride their snow white bears moved swiftly to her side.
They sent out the Ravens but sadly they new Mae’s dream was true.
Win or loose they had to fight the East Witch there was nothing else that they could do.
Fly away faithful birds find for us the news
Of the fate of Polar Bear and Mae’s half brother too.
The party made their way up into the mountains
Step by step they, not easy they made small gains.
The mountains were treacherous and they met many dangers on their way
Many tales of that journey I could tell but time is short so it must wait for another day.
On they went through the fiercest storm the world had ever seen.
Some of Ewen’s brave men were lost, their lives given for Mae , the child and the Winter Queen.
SADLY THE DANGERS OF THE MOUNTAINS ARE NAUGHT TO WHAT LIES AHEAD.
