01 what a piercing, chilling blast I
Down from the regions of the north
It comes, and pours its fury forth
With mad'ntng rage, and fearful spite,
At if to torment was delight,
And ev'ry object in its way
Far o'er tho dusty plaint to cast,
In mockery of children's play.
I low hard, how roiistanllyJt blows,
And ever and anon it snows,
Ten thousand Hakes are hurrying by,
Each ono his fellow fierce pursuing,
And each the former still out-doing,
So earnestly their race they run,
Their number darkens now the tun
And into every nook they fiy,
'Till earth, erst brown and soiled and scar,
Doth, in a moment, disappear,
Wrapped in a mantle while and deep,
Like one just sinking into tleepj
Guarded all o'er from outward harm,
It lies (her undisturbed and warm.
Another blast I and fiercer still,
It hurries onward o'er the hill,
Chilled, it would seem, e'en to tho heart,
And leaving regions up in air
Beyond the ken of mortals, where
Fierce storms arc brooded, where the cold
Has for long centuries grown obi,
Yet losing not with age Its strength,
It gathers alt its force to start
Down to the earth with tyrant's rage,
Some adversary to engage,
'Till worn and wearied out at length,
It stops awhile as if in check,
To look upon the gen'ral wreck,
Anil stands so still you might suppose
Its fury spent, yet, e'er aware,
Your ears, your fingers, and your nose
Are, notwithstanding, all your care,
Bitten, yet done so silently,
You think it surely cannot be,
01 it is cold, the air Is cold I
The earth, whatever you behold
Seems chilled ; to touch it Is to shiver,
And make each nerve and fibre quiver.
See, too, that angry, turbid stream,
Tossed with the winds but yesterday,
And sending up in air its spray,
Now lies so quiet, it wo ilil seem
Some one had aimed a deadly blow,
And all its haughty pride laid low ;
Some giant, strong, had hound it fast,
Lest it too soon should hurry past,
With all its waters, to the south,
And cause another summer's drouth.
Harder, still harder, now it snows,
And fiercer, loo, the north wind blows ;
It finds a hundred nji'nings where
AVe thought all well secured and tight,
Through which it drives the chilling air,
And then, retiring from the sight
It makes another onset bold,
And makes more keenly fell, the rold.
The glass with frost is covered o'er,
(Each pane, a coat of purest white,
Where you may crystal letters write;)
The Ice lies thick about the door,
Each day the thickness too increasing,
And daily north winds without ceasing;
The little birds, afraid to fly,
Scarce heed the traveler passing by ;
The chickens sit with frozen feet,
Too weak to walk, too cold to eat,
The cattle, with their backs all white
With snow, s'and shivering all the night,
Afraid In their cold bed to lie,
Although just at the point to die,
While stronger ones crowd close together,
Frozen almost in such cold weather,
Or shake their heads against Uie storm,
Wishing, perhaps, the air were warm,
The grass were green, with tender blade,
Themselves reclining 'i.ealh some shade,
Or haBt'ning to the spring to drink ;
Such thoughts as these, if cattle think,
Must come to mind when all around
They only hoar tho winds odd sound.
See that poor IuJIan shiv'riug stand,
The tear drop in her eye (
Far from her own, her native land,
Beneath a difTrent sky,
She lingers out her few short years
'Mid toils and sufl'iings, hopes and fears.
Look, how she gtriglc for that crust,
Fast frozen to the earth ;
To find such morsels is her trust,
Although they're little worth :
She gathers, takes them home with care,
Her little ones the treasure share.
Far o'er yon hill another stands,
With "row-shoes on his fect,
' No covering upoa his hands,
No food hat he to eat ;
He ventures forth with gun and task
To seek for game, no easy task,
'Tilt passing where the drifted snow
Conceals the waters deep below,
Hi body in the cold stream sinks,
And then he of his sweet-hom thinks,
And struggling hsrd, succeeds at length
In getting out, yet little strength
Is left. His limbs grow ttiT, he falls
J mt as he sees his tent, and calls
For help but ere the friendly aid
Arrives, lilt stalwart form is laid
SI ill In tho snow. He heeds them not;
They bear him to his 1 it t to cot,
And long and patiently they slrlvo
His senseless body to revive.
He lives ngnln, bill ne'er shall hn
Pursue the fleeting deer, nor be
A brave among the hunters' train,
But crippled all his life remain.
Ol happy they who guarded well
From outward storms ran sit ami tell
Of stormy days and nights of yore,
And count their hardships o'er and o'er,
Unconscious all the while of cold,
Unconscious that they have grown old,
Unconscious of the many poor,
Helpless and starving nt their door j
Starving for want of work and food,
Freezing for want of coal and wood.
Ol no, not happy, il they fiel
No Interest In a brother' weal ;
Go then, and though the cold winds blow,
Though hard, and harder slill It snow,
Though hedged your way, yet vi nture through,
And daily skkk some good to do.
