My older sister enjoys writing free verse as a hobby. Just a few days ago she wrote one about Captain America while he was in the ice. I thought it was beautiful (and feelsy!) so I convinced her to let me put in to Excelsior. I hope you enjoy.

The Captain’s Dream

Frozen beneath mountains of snow

Frozen through endless glaciers

Frozen ‘till time meets in space

I was a hero; I fought for the right

With stars and the stripes my allegiance lay

My powers and shield did it all

But my pleasure clashed with pain

The alpine mountains are my bane

Those peaks torment me since that fateful day –

When I saw Barnes disappear into the storm

His eyes still haunt me through swirling snow

Could this be how it was all meant to occur?

About The Mithril Guardian

I like stories.  Whether they’re on film, in song, or in print, I always remember a good story.  They remind me of paintings.  People cannot see them without learning something.  So it’s a good idea to look at a story from as many angles as possible.  I can watch the same movie a million times and still I will learn something that I did not know before.  Thoughts on the Edge of Forever is where I get to focus on what I learned from stories; what was not obvious the first time, the second time, or the umpteenth time. Earlier posts are written in the form of letters, usually to specific characters, to point out what I saw in a particular story or heard in a piece of music. Some of those letters, though, are like letters to the editor. Why did someone write a story this way and not another? Would the story have turned out better if the writer had done something different? These ‘letters to the editor’ will probably never be answered by the writers - the characters certainly will not answer anything - but their contents are still up for debate. After all, unless you ask a question, you will never get an answer. Still, civil ground rules apply. Any foul language or other form of abuse will not be tolerated in Thoughts on the Edge of Forever. I mean, who wants to be around the guest at the dinner party who is being nasty? Practically nobody, since people go to a party to have fun, not to hang around a grouch. So let’s have fun!
