Dame Edith Sitwell Snow Poems

  • 1.
    When cold December
    Froze to grisamber
    The jangling bells on the sweet rose-trees-
    Then fading slow
  • 2.
    Across the flat and the pastel snow
    Two people go…. ‘And do you remember
    When last we wandered this shore?'… ‘Ah no!
    For it is cold-hearted December.'
  • 3.
    Bells of gray crystal
    Break on each bough-
    The swans' breath will mist all
    The cold airs now.

William Shakespeare Poem
Sonnet 11: As Fast As Thou Shalt Wane, So Fast Thou Grow'st
 by William Shakespeare

As fast as thou shalt wane, so fast thou grow'st
In one of thine, from that which thou departest,
And that fresh blood which youngly thou bestow'st,
Thou mayst call thine when thou from youth convertest.
Herein lives wisdom, beauty, and increase;
Without this folly, age, and cold decay,
If all were minded so, the times should cease,
And threescore year would make the world away.
