                                                 MIDWINTER

           When the days are the shortest, the nights are the coldest,

                   The frost is the sharpest, the year is the oldest,

                   The sun is the weakest, the wind is the hardest,

                     And dress in your richest and finest and best…

                                        And now it will give you

                                      The promise of SPRING!
