    Winter
    From Love's Labour's Lost, Act 5 Scene 2
    by William Shakespeare

    When icicles hang by the wall
    And Dick the shepherd blows his nail,
    And Tom bears logs into the hall,
    And milk comes frozen home in pail;
    When blood is nipt, and ways be foul,
    Then nightly sings the staring owl
    Tu-whoo!
    Tu-whit! tu-whoo! A merry note!
    While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.

    When all around the wind doth blow,
    And coughing drowns the parson's saw,
    And birds sit brooding in the snow,
    And Marian's nose looks red and raw;
    When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl —
    Then nightly sings the staring owl
    Tu-whoo!
    Tu-whit! tu-whoo! A merry note!
    While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.
