Later On

Winter can be a long season, but thankfully our memories of other seasons remain with us throughout the winter months. Be inspired to draw on your memories by this poem about winter by Wilhelmina Stitch.



Later On
by Wilhelmina Stitch


When it's winter, I shall look
At a memory picture book.
I shall look and I shall see
Candles on a chestnut tree,
Coral pink and waxy white -
Won't they give a lovely light?

When the skies are dull and grey,
I shall see a summer day,
Hawthorn blossoms pink and red,
Lake of blue right overhead,
Roses on a cottage wall,
Graceful ferns where shadows fall;
Seagulls with their outspread wings -
I shall see such lovely things!

When it's winter, I shall look
At a memory picture book.
I shall see what joys I've had,
Many reasons to be glad;
Friends to love and books to read -
All these pictures I shall heed.
Seeing them, I'll cry aloud,
"Winter's over, Head-low-bowed.
Winter's over, Heart-in-pain.
Feel the breath of joy again...

When it's winter, I shall look
At my memory picture book.
