The Reign of Winter

She arrives in gown of pristine white:
Stunning
           Tempestuous
                             Cold.
A crystal crown of ice adorns  
Her frosty pate.

As she claims her wintry throne,
Winter makes her presence known,
With frigid breath,
                        and icy touch,
                                          she lingers---
Blue skies turn gray,
Autumn reds and golds fade away,
And
    the
        earth
               slumbers.
