When naked branches bow to wind and rain

In hopes that soon the sun will come again,

 

When winter wills chill fast the moonbeams’ glow,

And change the pelting rain to drifting snow

When Terra’s sister casts her silver glow

On frozen hills and valleys far below,

 

When falcons hunt for prey on lofty wing,

And nowhere hear the birds of summer sing,

 

When hailstones dare to beat against my pane,

I think not of the wind and driving rain.

Instead, my heart begins to dance and sing,

For soon, my eyes will see the joys of spring!
