Jus JoJan :23/01/14 Mae and Polar Bear.

Out  the demons came, evil incarnate

Our Heroes held their line  hoping death was not their fate.

Stand your ground cried Ewen wait until you smell their breath

Do your best to sever their heads men it is the only way they will meet their death.

The winter Queen had her polar  bears at the ready

She cautioned Mae  to cling to Vlad and to fire her arrows steady!

Mae cried I am ready now to fight for my father’s honest name.

I swear I shall right all the wrong  and restore this land again!

The winter Queen threw off  her cloak and and waved her sword on high.

Mae  clung on to Vlad and followed her into battle screaming “Victory for  my kind or  I die.

The Battle raged day and night the demons never tired.

No sooner were the demons chopped down  more of them were sired!

Sword on shield, arrow on shield Blood and skin on the battle field.

Then  Just as they thought  nothing could  get worse

The Evil witch of  the East  sent  her evil dragons out like a curse!

On and on they came one after the other getting  larger and and  more fierce.

They waded into the Humans and the fairies killing them their screams the dawn  did pierce.

JusJoJan : Mae and Polar Bear : 19/01/14

As rooted  to the spot  they stood

Man, Fairy all akin bound in brotherhood!

The sight before them enough to freeze  the soul

Was this  what they had come to claim was this truly the goal?

 

Of a sudden a roar of hundreds horns

Broke the dark night’s silence like the breaking of a thousand dawns.

A shaft of light hit the castle walls  and out  from every orifice demons and devils crawled.

They  came even though they shielded their eyes for they did not like the light  .

 

A moment of shock, then Ewen recovered  his voice

Line up  my men and elves line up  we fight  we have no choice!

Mae  shivered at  the thought  that Polar Bear lay close to death

And her kin was that Castle yonder within, out of touch yet in a hair’s breadth !

 

Inside the castle behind thick walls the evil witch of the East sat in an empty hall

Though the arrow slits  she saw Ewen’s army she willed  Ewens’ men to fall.

And the men loyal to the Winter Queen she cursed, her spite made her ugly.

She crossed the room and wove a spell over the sleeping  boy so he’d never be free.

 

 

WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT TO OUR HEREOS  WHAT LIES IN STORE FOR THEM

WISH THEM WELL MY FRIENDS.

JusJoJan: Little Mae and Polar Bear 09/01/14

The way had been arduous with treacherous mountains passes

The travelers  and  Ewen’s army had been brave and strong in their advances.

Then came the cold grey dawn of the first day of the fourth week

Mae’s castle home stood before them, they had reached the goal they seek.

Everyone was frozen by the sight of the once beautiful castle and city

Gone was it’s glow , it look base and dark , Mae shed a tear of pity.

Mae  thought to herself, what has happened to my home

Oh! she thought, my poor sweet brother is in there on his own.

May and Polar Bear : 02/01/14

The way was treacherous, the weather evil and cruel

The storm was hindering them, impeding  their way and they were short on fuel.

Mae was tortured by visions of her brother  in the Witch of the East’s hold

Also those of her beloved Polar Bear prone inert upon the snow laid  cold.

Battling on as  best they can they faced  horror hither to unknown to man.

Fiery two headed dragons breathing ice and fire.Wolves so huge their legs each side of the road would span.

Yet they battled on ,the witch of the East was watching their every move

Every slip and fall they suffered she was watching , it was working wonders on her mood!

Spitefully she smiled  as they suffered  cold and hunger pangs

She found solace in their agony , she thrived on their pain

It truly excited her to see them struggling and suffering strain.

Taking pleasure in their toils  she encourage the child to join her in this game.

 

 

 

EvDaDaDec: Mae and Polar Bear. 31/12/12

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.

EvDaDaDec: Little Mae and Polar Bear 30.12.13

Time  seemed suspended as  the small party  moved on

With their  eyes searching but not seeing , all landmarks gone.

The Queen though brave  felt dread in her heart

Not  knowing  if help would come in time , she had been uneasy from the start.

Mae rode Vlad, the Winter Queen’d most beloved Bear

He was strong , clever and fearless and of Mae  he would take care.

The cold was biting and the wind  froze  their breath

Though  all was covered  with snow , nothing could hide the smell of death.

The landscape barren, a forgotten frozen waste

Let  us hope that reinforcements come, and come with all haste.

As the travellers reach the end of the the valley  that they have been passing through

Mountains loom above them,there is no way round them, so to cross them is what, they will have to do.

Mae was struck  by horror this seemed an impossible task

But  the Winter Queen  assured her they could do this, but her fears were hardly masked!

Darkness was closing in  they could see it advancing  like a curtain of black

They stood there knowing the only way was forward , for there was no turning back.

Just when they felt that all was lost , a figure came towards them,as in a fairy tale!

It was the Winter’s brother who had been keeping watch for them in this ungodly gale.

Quickly  he shepherded them  back to  his battle camp.

With food and warmth  they thawed, relieved that for now they had ceased their tramp.

Ewen  was a noble man who loved his sister dear

As  soon as he received his sister’s call for help , his destiny was clear.

He had  and army  of a thousand  men, all of them good and true

But he knew he would need more as out of the Witch’s lair  thousands would spew.

Mae slept exhausted exactly where she had dropped

Ewen and his sister talked while keeping watch.Then with the dawn the snow stopped

The night passed quickly  and Mae was with her brother in her dreams

She suddenly  saw Polar Bear turn into the Witch of the East! Mae woke the whole camp with her terrified screams.

THE ROAD AHEAD FOR OUR TRAVELERS WILL NOT BE EASY. 

EvDaDaDec: Little Mae and Polar Bear. 22.12.13

Please protect my  brother  please Polar Bear

I feel evil  all around us  from I don’t  know where.

The  Winter Queen  and I, must  our  enemy meet

Without  full knowledge of her plans we can  not her defeat.

Unhappy to stay  behind leaving Little Mae without  his protection

Felt wrong  to him , like  putting an offering  out  for the East Witch’s collection.

Yet  so adamant  was Mae the child was to be in his care

He agreed  to do as he was bid , to upset Mae  he did not dare.

7a4e131921948e7cc73d8b0094fc2a35-d3ea1rk.jpg

The  Winter Queen was ready , so beautiful, so very brave

She knew  the Witch of  the East, she knew exactly  how badly  she could  behave.

Polar Bear  so uneasy at Mae’s  plans  to visit the witch, feared  for her life.

He  warned the Winter Queen  if she returned  without  Mae  he would cause  her strife.

Mae, upset  but  touched  by Polar Bear’s threats to the Queen

Took  his paw  and promised  she would  return as would  the Queen.

The  Child  must  be kept safe  at whatever  the cost

Mae somehow  knew that  without  this child all would  be lost!

So the child was left in safety  with Polar Bear

Mae  knew  no one else could afford more care .

So out into the night, Out into the dark and the snow.

To face  what dangers the like of which we do not know.

SO WE LEAVE THE CHILD TO SLEEP SAFE

EvDaDaDec : Little Mae and Polar Bear. 19/12/ 20

Onwards through  the cold, through  the forgotten lands travelled our  gallant  crew

Unsuspecting they were being spied on. By the  Wicked Witch of  the East  and her  sisters  two.

Her lover, in wolf from padded  to her  heels. Willing  our innocents  to a nasty  death.

Evil was in the air  all around  them, tangible, and  vile  was the scent  of their breath.

Ever  cunning  she sent her  owls  to watch their progress, one carrying an invitation for the company  to join her.

She  promised  she  meant  no  harm and  all she wanted  was  to have her  beautiful  son  back in  her  care.

No  mention of  her sisters, no mention  of  her wolverine lover .

Do not  trust  her Mae she is tricking  you , she is no loving  mother.

Polar Bear  was  first to sense  the trouble , he saw the birds advancing  from east.

One dropped  the invitation at  the Winter Queen’s  feet. They were all summoned to a royal feast.

The  Queen  and Polar  Bear  agreed  this was a trap  they were in danger and  so they took  heed.

They must  find  some allies to  fight  this Evil,  to save  the kingdom  which  was dying , and fast indeed.

Sending out  her fastest  bear the Winter  Queen  called  upon  her armies, and her friends armies to  meet  her here!

It grew  so dark they were unsure if  it were day  or  night.With only  snow , not a  landmark  left.

They did not know which  way was right. At  length  they had  to stop  as  they  were hemmed in  by  a snow drift.

 

The  witch sends  out  spell after  spell to unsettle  the friends and  confuse

Coloured lights adorn  the sky the glint from the snow make  the path  hard  to choose.

Yet something  keeps  them moving on,  something is on their side.

Mae  and  the child  feel the essence, could it be the spirit  of  their  father  who’d died.

WE MUST LEAVE  OUR  TRAVELLERS  FOR  NOW. 

 

 

 

 

EvDaDaDec : Little Mae and Polar Bear.

And  so they set off towards  the dawn, the bears  the  princess, the winter  Queen and  the boy.

Forward  into  their  kingdom  lost. The  winter scenes  and  the bleakness  brought  them  no joy!

Where  once  was were  fields and villages was now  only  desolation

The child  clinging  to  her,  Mae  could  not  believe her  eyes , the sight  was beyond contemplation.

 

Where  were all the  people, where were had the  villages and  the towns, all gone  the life  of old.

The witch  of  the East had  had  turned  a beautiful  land into an icescape, dull and cold.

An evil  spell  she had  woven, because she had  not  been given what  she had  demanded

She  wanted  the sole devotion of Mae’s  father , he  was was  not happy  to do as  she commanded .

 

Polar Bear  could  not believe  his  eyes , so he walked  looking down at  the ground.

The  beautiful  white  horses tried  to comfort  him  but so sad was he no solace  was to be found.

Mae  though  heart  broken  sort to  comfort  him  too, she realized  then  she loved  him with a love  so clear  and  true.

Gently setting  the  child  down  on the  horses back , she  dismounted  and  whispered in the mare’s ear. “I entrust  the child  to  you.

Mae could not stand  to see such  pain , so  she  walked  and talked  with Polar Bear hoping  to ease his  strain.

The  Winter Queen  was  pleased  to see this blossoming of  love  she  knew  nothing  melted  ice  so fast  as love’s sweet refrain.

The  wind  was  icy  the snow  was  hard  but  our  party  ventured on , not  sure  where  they were  going  nor  yet  what  they would  find.

Surely  as  breath  follows  breath  Mae  and Polar  Bear  grew closer , their  love began to grow . Both  were beautiful  and  both were of a kind.

SO AGAIN WE  MUST LEAVE OUR  TRAVELLERS  TO TRAVEL ON.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EvDaDaDec : 15/12/20 Little Mae and Polar Bear

And so  the dawn  creeps up relieving   the night of her  dark shroud .

The  sky looked as barren and empty  as  the land not  a fleck of cloud!

From out of  nowhere  came  two  visitors so beautiful  were they.

Horses  stallion and mare . They had come  to greet and  from here  to carry  the child  and Mae.

 

Polar Bear was pleased  to meet them, the Winter Queen  knew  them of old.

Mae and  the child  both  mounted  the mare  Mae  cuddled  her brother  against  the cold.

The  Winter  Queen  took to the Stallion who she rode  with pride

Her Polar  Bears unjealous trotted at  her side !

 

So they travelled across the  frozen wasteland

That was once  her home  the child with eyes  wide held tight  to her  hand.

Polar  Bear  walked  silent  behind relieved  to be on the move again

He only had one wish to return  to his  human frame

Poor Polar Bear  was once a man

He  was charged  by  his dying  king  to protect his daughter  the best he can.

The Evil  witch of the East turned him into a Polar Bear

He  very soon fell in  love  with Mae for her  he really cared.

He  spent  two years  protecting Mae before he realized his love was all for her.
