The giant that lives in the hill
Is cleaning his chimney out.
The soot flutters high
In the cold, white sky
And the wind flings it rudely about.

Now it's falling in fragments of black
Where the tops of the maples are red;
And a world that was still
Of a sudden's a-thrill
With the sounds of a spring that is dead!
