I CAN not make you songs for winter singing:
The dark trees lifting stark limbs
Up to chilly skies
Are not more barren than my heart—
My heart that in the lush warm flush of autumn
Gave prodigally of love and zest of living—
But youth and joy
Danced on across the far blue hills
With autumn;
Now through bleak days
I huddle meek
And silent.
