Tilting at snowfall

Snow falls from moon
white soft drifting moon
challenge hurled from sky throne

rise knight lash armour tight
cog throaty drains with wool
and bundle lungs entire armory

chant valedictory oaths of joy
and venture eye spitting cold
to tryst white walls adamantine

grip shovel imperial
lust after life
stagger triumphant
