WINTER




Stern winter throws his icy chains,
Encircling nature round;
How bleak, how comfortless the plains,
Late with gay verdure crowned!


The sun withdraws his vital beams,
And light and warmth depart;
And drooping, lifeless nature seems
An emblem of my heart.


My heart, when mental winter reigns,
In night's dark mantle clad;
Confined in cold, inactive chains,
How desolate and sad!


Return, O blissful sun, and bring
The soul-reviving ray;
This mental winter shall be spring,
This darkness cheerful day.


O happy state, divine abode,
Where spring eternal reigns;
And perfect day, the smile of God,
Fills all the heavenly plains.


Great source of light, thy beams display,
My drooping joys restore:
And guide me to the seats of day,
Where winter chills no more.
