Winter Song
By Ludwig Heinrich Christoph Hölty (1748–1776)
 
Translation of Charles Timothy Brooks

    SUMMER joys are o’er;
    Flowerets bloom no more;
Wintry winds are sweeping:
Through the snow-drifts peeping,
    Cheerful evergreen        5
    Rarely now is seen.
 
    Now no plumèd throng
    Charms the woods with song;
Ice-bound trees are glittering;
Merry snow-birds, twittering,        10
    Fondly strive to cheer
    Scenes so cold and drear.
 
    Winter, still I see
    Many charms in thee;
Love thy chilly greeting,        15
Snow-storms fiercely beating,
    And the dear delights
    Of the long, long nights.
