Frosty-white and cold it lies
Underneath the fretful skies
Snowflakes flutter where the red
Banners of the poppies spread,
And the drifts are wide and deep
Where the lilies fell asleep.
 
But the sunsets o’er it throw
Flame-like splendor, lucent glow,
And the moonshine makes it gleam
Like a wonderland of dream,
And the sharp winds all the day
Pipe and whistle shrilly gay.
 
 
Safe beneath the snowdrifts lie
Rainbow buds of by-and-by;
In the long, sweet days of spring
Music of bluebells shall ring,
And its faintly golden cup
Many a primrose will hold up.
 
 
Though the winds are keen and chill
Roses’ hearts are beating still,
And the garden tranquility
Dreams of happy hours to be-
In the summer days of blue
All its dreamings will come true.
