Excerpt from A Metrical Medley for the Months In rubber boots your feet encase, Prepare the stinging sleet to face. The papers have anunced the fact That Thin materials are unpacked; The cause in hand brooks delay. This summons, shivering, we obey. Perhaps 't will warm us up to gaze At muslins, thinking of the days, When, in the shade at ninety-six, The motionless quicksilver sticks!'twixt sunset and the dawn some night.
