Winter Sports

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.
