Winter (Feb. 1970)

When Winter’s icy fingers freeze your hands…

Winter (Feb. 1970)

When Winter’s icy fingers freeze your hands;
Her frosty breath benumbs your face; when stands
The chilly tear-drop in your smarting eyes,
And all the earth in cold white stillness lies,
Then think of Summer past or future Spring
When this white-shrouded earth and everything
Which now seems dead will be alive again.
The rose will bloom, the sun will shine, the same
Sweet song of birds will greet the morning – so
Let past or future joys heal present woe.

Meg Rugg-Easey Feb. 1970
