Ice King

With a frozen quill he unleashes brittle words--- a sword of ice Sculptured from cold glass within a fragile kingdom cracks in the veneer In a kingdom of ice a crystal world could splinter by noble warnings
........... By Carrie Richards note: Even on a hot day, one cube allowed to melt, causes an ache in the palm then relief dabbed on the forehead by the remaining cold water A mixed blessing.....

    I think you filled the bill awesomely, Carrie. I did not realize until late that we had to actually write about an ice king, and I just made mine about holding the ice in my palm. Did you time it. 20 min. seemed a long time!!
