Winter Poems, Rhymes and Verses

Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind
by William Shakespeare


Blow, blow, thou winter wind.
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then, heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.
Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That dost not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remember'd not.
Heigh-ho! Sing
As You Like It (Act II, Scene 7)

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English poet and playwright.
