A Dream Of Winter
written by William Henry Davies
From "Ambition", 1929 Link to further information




These flowers survive their lover bees,
Whose deep bass voices filled the air;
The cuckoo and the nightingale
Have come and gone, we know not where.

Now, in this green and silent world,
In Autumn, full of smiling light,
I hear a bird that, suddenly,
Startles my hearing and my sight.

It is the Robin, singing of
A silver world of snow and frost;
Where all is cold and white - except
The fire that's on his own warm breast.
