Poem of the Week / Selina Moses

Copper Mountain

Poem of the week

Silently she watches, carefully she treads

Sensing her presence fills men with dread,

Those who work nearby have often said

That The Mistress of Copper Mountain is a heart unread.

Sometimes clothed in a malachite dress

Sometimes a lizard at her own behest,

Frightening and formidable it must be confessed

For Katya to encounter at her rescue quest.

Still she calls for Danila to hear

She appeals to him, her love so dear,

He hears her far away, yet she is so near

The memory of her erases any fear.

She laughs and rewards him, Danila is let go

She bids them silence for the time they go home,

The Mistress of Copper Mountain is not quite a foe

But they are the only ones to know.
