IN the bleak mid-winter

    Frosty wind made moan;

Earth stood hard as iron,

    Water like a stone;

Snow had fallen, snow on snow,

    Snow on snow,

In the bleak mid-winter

    Long ago. 



Lines from “In the Bleak Midwinter” by Christina G. Rossetti. 

First published in Scribner’s Monthly as part of her poem called “A Christmas Carol,” January 1872.
