Falling upon the frozen world last night
I heard the slow beat of the winter rain -
Poor foolish drops, down-dripping all in vain;
The ice-bound Earth but mocked their puny might;
Far better had the fixedness of white
And uncomplaining snows - which make no sign,
But coldly smile, when pitying moonbeams shine -
Concealed its sorrow from all human sight.
Long, long ago, in blurred and burdened years,
I learned the uselessness of uttered woe.
Though sinewy Fate deals her most skillful blow,
I do not waste the gall now of my tears,
But feed my pride upon its bitter, while
I look straight in the world's bold eyes, and smile.
The Green Grass Under The Snow
Poet: Annie A. Preston
The work of the sun is slow,
But as sure as heaven, we know;
So we'll not forget,
When the skies are wet,
There's green grass under the snow.
When the winds of winter blow,
Wailing like voices of woe,
There are April showers,
And buds and flowers,
And green grass under the snow.
We find that it's ever so
In this life's uneven flow;
We've only to wait,
In the face of fate,
For the green grass under the snow.
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
Winter brings the shorter days Less of sun and its rays Coldness is felt in the air And more clothes we do wear.
But winter can also bring lots of fun Skating, snowshoeing, and
tobogganing Rosy cheeks for all to see Enjoy hot chocolate or coffee
Don't waste away those winter days Get out and find some play Enjoy the season as it won't last Get out and have a blast!
Ice and snow, ice and snow,
Frozen fields where e'er we go.
Frozen fields and frozen lakes,
Frosted o'er like wedding cakes.
Girls and boys leave your toys.
Come and taste cold-weather joys.
Bring your sleds and bring your skates.
Hasten now while winter waits.
