Servant of Winter

Hey, it's up!

I feel rather sheepish for missing it, but my poem is up at Silver Blade:

This was the first villanelle I wrote, and it wasn't done in poetic form initially. It was part of my 3am Epiphany "boot camp" and the assignment was to write a brief prose piece that used the elements of a villanelle. In fact, this was the first time I'd ever even heard of the form.

I recast it as a poem and started submitting it. I spent some time wrangling with another editor who decided not to accept it, and I did change some of the things he requested back - but the final version was much stronger, I think, and much thanks to his suggestions.
