Winter

27th December 2016

Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind
Blow, blow, thou winter wind 
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.

Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most freindship if feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.

Freeze, freeze thou bitter sky,
That does not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As a friend remembered not.
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly. 



The weather is very windy but we have a thaw today.

  1. What a beautiful scene.
    And the bard is right, ingratitude is colder than winter's blast.

  2. I haven't read that one before. It certainly makes a snowy winter sound nice. Here in Melbourne Australia we just sweltered through a 37 degrees (Celsius) Christmas - not fun!

  4. It sure looks cold. I suppose you can be grateful for the thaw but now you probably have slush everywhere!
