CHICAGO WEATHER - Barron Field Poems


Poems » barron field » chicago weather


To-day, fair Thisbe, winsome girl!
    Strays o'er the meads where daisies blow,
Or, ling'ring where the brooklets purl,
    Laves in the cool, refreshing flow.

To-morrow, Thisbe, with a host
    Of amorous suitors in her train,
Comes like a goddess forth to coast
    Or skate upon the frozen main.

To-day, sweet posies mark her track,
    While birds sing gayly in the trees;
To-morrow morn, her sealskin sack
    Defies the piping polar breeze.

So Doris is to-day enthused
    By Thisbe's soft, responsive sighs,
And on the morrow is confused
    By Thisbe's cold, repellent eyes.
