Frozen Lake – Poem


Frozen Lake poem wolfe butler WB

I tried to walk

Alone across

An endless frozen sea

 

T’was dark as coal

All twilight gone

A path I did not know

 

I walked in vain

To reach no goal

Direction had no road

 

No markers there

Or signs to guide

A frozen land nowhere

 

Though not yet doomed

My trip grew worse

As through a hole I fell

 

To gasp for air

And fight for strength

But all to no avail

 

For in the dark

With water deep

I found no hole to flee

 

A grave unmarked

No man to know

A myst’ry plain to see

 

No light to guide

No helping hand

Instead this silent sea
