In the bleak mid-winter

The bleak mid-winter, a watercolour painting by Jo DunnIn the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan ;
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone ;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow ;
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago…

From the poem ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Christina Rossetti, published in 1872.
