1 THO' faintly shines this winter's sun,
2 And short his visits be,
3 He warms my heart, for oft I hope,
4 He shines on you and me.
5 The moon too, beauteous queen of night,
6 Enraptur'd still I see;
7 For sure I think her rays serene,
8 Are seen by you and me.
9 And gaily burns our rural fire,
10 And happy should I be,
11 But cold's my heart, there wants a charm,
12 It warms not you and me.
13 And fiercely blows this cold north wind,
14 For ruffian blasts has he;
15 But bitterer far that zephyr's breeze,
16 Which parted you and me.
