WINTER EVENING

 

The heath lies far and wide bestrewn with snow,
From the full moon there falls a gentle glow.

Amid the white expanse of snow-clad plains
Only a naked pear-tree trunk remains.

In the white gardens, by the valley’s side,
Huddled in sleep our tiny homes abide.

In the small easements not a spark is gleaming,
The wearied people lie serenely dreaming.

O'er snowy plain the air doth gently sweep—
The Cheskian country breathes it in, how deep
