Public Domain Nature Poem for Card Making or Junk Journaling: Winter by Frederick Miller

Like a blushing maiden
Nature hides her face,
But by what she loses
Gains an added grace.
While the snowflakes thickly
Flutter through the gloom,
Let the dancing fire flames
Cheer our cosy room.
And though it be winter
We'll not think of sorrow,
For from friendship's hearthstone
Summer warmth we'll borrow.

The poem is enclosed within an illustrated border that shows three fluffy birds in their winter down huddled together on a branch of a tree thick with pinecones. Below the tree, at the bottom of the border sprigs of wild holly reach up, offering a cold weather bounty of luscious berries.
