THE SNOW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When barren boughs above us wave
Last Line: And snow lies deep, and earth lies frore.
Subject(s): Past; Snow


WHEN barren boughs above us wave,
And snow lies deep above the mire;
When all the earth is stone to grave,
And lonely poplars upward spire;

When, snow on wing, the rook doth rock,
Hard-frozen on his lofty perch,
As stilly as the weather-cock
Upon the steeple of the church;

Ah! then how sweet to hear the brave
Old stories of the days of yore.
When barren boughs above us wave,
And snow lies deep, and earth lies frore.
