Lady Winter clothed in ermine
On the North Wind gallops in,
Over crystal bridges bright,
Over carpets snowy white.
See the North Wind snorting, prancing,
Scare the leaves that, romping, dancing,
Cease their merriment and play
And hurrying, scurrying, run away.

There was an old woman tossed up in a basket,
Ninety times as high as the moon;
And where she was going, I couldn’t but ask her,
For in her hand she carried a broom.
“Old woman, old woman, old woman,” quoth I,
“Whither, O whither, O whither so high?”
“To sweep the cobwebs off the sky!”
“Shall I go with you? “Aye, by-and-by.”
