The Roaring Frost / Alice Meynell

The Roaring Frost

A flock of winds came winging from the North,
Strong birds with fighting pinions driving forth
      With a resounding call!

Where will they close their wings and cease their cries
Between what warming seas and conquering skies
      And fold, and fall? 

Alice Meynell
from The Shepherdess, and other verses, 1913
