|House of the Undying
Author: Franklin2013VMI PM
I listened to "House of the Undying" from the Game of Thrones Score and wrote down what I imagined. I know the imagery is heavily influenced by seeing the show, but I had fun building a Neuschwanstein-style scene set in a fantasy winter world! It's kind of fanfiction, but since the only elements of the show that appear here are that of winter and castles, I posted this poem here.Rated: Fiction K - English - Fantasy/Drama - Words: 155 - Published: 10-25-12 - Status: Complete - id: 3068616

House of the Undying
Big blue sky bright as a robin's egg,
So frigid and unrelenting,
Not even the sun gives warmth.
Gusts of sharply cutting wind,
It stings ears and numbs fingers,
Gray lips and red noses.
Rolling hills covered in pines
And blanketed in thick snow
Under the heartless sun.
Snow so blinding white,
Eyes squint and skin burns
In these harsh elements.
Pines with tall rusty trunks,
Boughs high above drooping,
Green needles under white dust.
Icy harbor below,
Empty and impassable,
Lonely docks of frosty wood.
Majestic mountains beyond,
Jagged slopes of rock and snow,
Scraping the heavens and sun.
One hill higher than the others,
Slopes steep and crest of cliffs,
Wearing a crown of evergreen.
Tall stone walls in the evergreen crown,
Ornately vaulted Gothic windows,
Needle-topped towers stand silently.
A keep of solitude and desolation,
Dark and void of warmth of life,
Perched amid frozen splendor.
