Winter

“WINTER.
Hoary, and dim, and bare, and shivering
Like a poor almsman comes the aged Year,
With kind “God save you all, good gentlefolks!”
Heap on fresh fuel, make a blazing fire,
Bring out the cup of kindness, spread the board,
and gladden Winter with our cheerfulnes!
Wassail!—To you, and yours, and all!—All health!” (p. 1561) [more...] [$]
