Katherine Mansfield

Born 1888 Wellington, New Zealand.

Winter Song

 
Rain and wind, and wind and rain.
Will the Summer come again?
Rain on houses, on the street,
Wetting all the people's feet,
Though they run with might and main.
Rain and wind, and wind and rain.
Winter
Snow and sleet, and sleet and snow. Will the Winter never go? What do beggar children do With no fire to cuddle to, P'raps with nowhere warm to go? Snow and sleet, and sleet and snow.
Valerius De Saedeleer (1867 - 1941)
Flemish painter
Winter in the Flemish Ardennes  
Koninklijke Musea voor Schone Kunsten, Brussel
Hail and ice, and ice and hail, Water frozen in the pail. See the robins, brown and red, They are waiting to be fed. Poor dears, battling in the gale! Hail and ice, and ice and hail.
