Winter Song

Wilfred Owen - Wed, Dec 5th 2012





The browns, the olives and the yellows died,

And were swept up to heaven; where they glowed

Each dawn and set of sun till Christmastide,

And when the land lay pale for them, pale-snowed,

Fell back, and down the snow-drifts flamed and flowed.


From off your face, into the winds of winter,

The sun-brown and the summer-gold are blowing;

But they shall gleam with spiritual glitter,

When paler beauty on your brows  falls snowing,

And through those snows my looks shall be soft-going.


Wilfred Owen  (1893 - 1918)
