winter quotes- 10 of

The wheatstack for the mouse,
Alas! in winter, dead and dark,

Lhude sing cuccu!

It was a chilly winter's night;
And frost was glitt'ring on the ground,
And evening stars were twinkling bright;
Whenas the Chill Sirocco blowes,
And Winter tells a heavy tale;
The English winter--ending in July,
To recommence in August.

All bloodless lay the untrodden snow,
The summer hath his joys
And winter his delights;
In winter, when the fields are white,
I sing this song for your delight--
