Last Line: All silent, white.
Subject(s): Frost; Hunger; Snow; Wind; Winter

THE wind blows high, the wind blows low.
The buried prairies in the snow
Lie warm and deep.
Safe under Winter's soft white wing
A little seedling dreams of spring,
Stirs in its sleep.

The wind has gone, and softly come
Small furry friends from drifted home,
Hungry — a-fright —
The marks of tiny footsteps show,
Like frozen music-notes, on snow
All silent, white.
