Winter Beauty

Summer leaves have fallen,
  Summer’s beauty’s fled,
But with the summer’s dying
  Beauty is not dead.

For hoarfrost decks the poplars
  In robes of silver sheen,
And makes them just as beautiful
  As summer’s verdure green.

The snow-flowers crown the hilltop,
  All sparkling, fair and white;
Oh say, what day of summer
  Can give such beauty bright.
