On my Bed of a Winter Night
By Elizabeth Drew Barstow Stoddard (1823–1902)
 
ON my bed of a winter night,
  Deep in a sleep, and deep in a dream,
What care I for the wild wind’s scream?
  What to me is its crooked flight?
 
On the sea of a summer’s day,        5
  Wrapped in the folds of a snowy sail,
What care I for the fitful gale,
  Now in earnest, and now in play?
 
What care I for the fitful wind,
  That groans in a gorge, or sighs in a tree?        10
Groaning and sighing are nothing to me;
  For I am a man of steadfast mind.
