Public Domain Nature Poem: Winter by Louise Bryant


WINTER
by Louise Bryant
(originally published early 20th century)

As inevitably
As the leaves fall,
So must the old
To bleak oblivion
Pass.

Shed no tear
For the dying year
Or that sublime decay
Which marks
The ignominious end
Of kings
And worn-out things.

Make way for spring!
