Subject(s): January; Winter

A pale moon was watching "Jack Frost" paint the trees
With a magical brush,
While the leaves that had fallen were blown by the breeze
In a terrible rush.
A wee drop of dew turned to diamonds and jade,
That a monarch might wear;
A breath of south wind through the valley and glade
Lent a song to the air.

Old "Mother Earth" with a smile to the Fall
Had said, "Can't you see --
The blossoms and trees, the flowers and all
Will come back to me?"
Even you, as life's pleasures drop off by degrees,
Will hail a new birth,
And will pillow your head -- like any of these,
On the bosom of Earth.
