Norman Rowland Gale Time Poems

  • 1.
    All work is over at the farm
    And men and maids are ripe for glee;
    Love slips among them sly and warm
    Or calls them to the chestnut-tree.

    If ever there was a Golden Game
    To brace the nerves, to cure repining,
    To put the Dumps to flight and shame,
    It's Cricket when the sun is shining!

    Prancing forth to their vagary,

    Where I cuddle up so closely when she reads the Fairy-book.

    With wisdom learnt from ancient teachers,
    Now winter time once more is here,
    This grease upon your lengthy features!
