The children’s coats are downy white,
And ruddy winter berries bright
Are tam-o’-shanters warm and red
Upon each little golden head.
On sleds of holly leaves they coast,
Of silver skates they proudly boast
And snowball fights with tiny forts –
These are their jolly winter sports.
A Year With the Fairies.
