Blow Thou Winter Wind
Blow thou Winter winds;
Howl, shriek and moan.
Rattle the windows.
Bend trees and snap saplings,
Empty my garden of laughter
For no longer do my children play,
Thou hast snatched the roses from their cheeks.
And sent them scurrying indoors
As you chase them with stinging rain.
And fill their hearts with gloom.
But not forever wilt thou reign,
When slowly turns the Earth again,
To gaze upon full sun and drink in gentle rain,
To gather sunbeams where dances pixie dust,
As daffodils, lifting sleepy heads from warming soil
Satisfy my garden with colour and life,
Then shall dance the butterfly.
Then shall my children’s laughter once more resound
And fill each corner with mirth,
Each tree with squeals of delight.
From early morning light,
Till dusk folds down her velvet blanket
And stars begin to fill the sky.
Then shall we forget the bitter cold
And rejoice in the singing of the birds.
