White Colors

And so before the yellow sun of spring

the white of snow does fly,

and winter seems to last too long,

still coming white from all the sky.

And snow of winter

covers all the grass so green

it makes a pretty view to see

and cautions white so keen;

but I like snow so well

for as a child I had none,

so I played snow games

with my children, I would run

and ride their sled to kingdom come,

And it was worth all the joy

to see my children play

each girl, each boy,

upon the snowy ground

and all my dreams

of all my winter's

full of whitening beams

Oh! That is true

No greater white it seems!
