a plume of smoke ~

rises from the cabin warm ...

"Appalachian Winter"

Winter: A Dirge

Robert Burns

The wintry west extends his blast,

And hail and rain does blow;

Or the stormy north sends driving forth

The blinding sleet and snow:

While, tumbling brown, the burn comes down,

And roars frae bank to brae;

And bird and beast in covert rest,

And pass the heartless day.

"The sweeping blast, the sky o'ercast,

"The joyless winter dayLet others fear, to me more dear

Than all the pride of May:

The tempest's howl, it soothes my soul,

My griefs it seems to join;

The leafless trees my fancy please,

Their fate resembles mine!

Thou Power Supreme, whose mighty scheme

These woes of mine fulfil,

Here firm I rest; they must be best,

Because they are Thy will!

Then all I want-

O do Thou grant

This one request of mine!-

Since to enjoy

Thou dost deny,

Assist me to resign
