Last Line: And how that pickled herring makes a show!
Alternate Author Name(s): Liliencron, Detlev Von
Subject(s): Winter


Perched on his bough, a monster raven makes
the one strong note etched black upon the snow.
But no! a stooping stout old goody takes
her painful way, mumbling, stumbling and slow.
What a wind-reddened nose, for gracious sakes!
Her left arm in her apron—frost hurts so!—
in her right hand a garnished platter shakes,
and how that pickled herring makes a show!
