A Few Winter Poems
The Skating Pond
How often I remember
The frozen prarie pond,
That seemed to be a wonderland
Touched by a fairy's wand.
Skating with my merry chums
Brought my heart content,
Laughing, shouting with such glee
At magic winter sent.
What fun to glide on crystal ice
Tho sometimes we would fall,
But scramble to our feet again
Not minding it at all.
And as the snowflakes drifted down
To swirl with northwind's blast,
Our dearest hope would always be
That wintertime would last.
I often think about those days
And wish for them once more,
For through the eyes of childhood
They held great joy in store.
LaVerne P. Larson
Come Ye Thankful People Come
Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest-home:
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.
Henry Alford (1844)
Act II, Scene 7 from As You Like It
Blow, blow, thou winter wind,
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude:
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.
Heigh -ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly;
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly,
Then heigh-ho! the holly!
This life is most jolly.
Freeze, freeze, thy bitter sky,
That dost not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remember'd not.
William Shakespeare (1600)
