Subject(s): Winter


When winter snows have fallen in the night
And every naked tree is crisp with rime
I yearn with Fancy for a fairer clime
Where lemon blossoms blow and birds are bright --
The earth has never known of summer's flight!
When bleak winds seek my door and whistle through
I think of orchards sweet with fragrant dew,
Untouched by winter silence cold and white.

How could I e'er believe that spring would wing
In warm Chinooks that breathe of flowers fair
Across the frozen glitter of the plain,
Were it not that upon the earth brids sing
In songs that never die on summer air?
Were it not so, my hope to me were vain!
