Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind - Poem by William Shakespeare

Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.

Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most freindship if feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.

Freeze, freeze thou bitter sky,
That does not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As a friend remembered not.
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.

    Blow, blow, thou winter wind

    As man's ingratitude; These lines vividly reveal in the beginning itself the feel of the poem....the rest of the words support beautifully the whole structure of the poem...especially the refrain....no doubt, Shakespeare is great - 10 (Report) Reply

    Blow, blow, thou winter wind
    Thou art not so unkind

    The two starting lines
    Keep the whole poem
    Obviously great

    Yes, the jolly sounding song is conveying a pessimistic message about mankind. I'm not so sure it is totally dark though. Shakespeare was subtle and for me he is conveying some home truths about the nature of the fallen race of humans while at the same time there is this sense that it doesn't have to be like this; there is a higher standard. Ultimately the human spirit can overcome disloyalty and self centredness. One way of doing this is through forgiveness and behaving otherwise to the general behaviour around you. There is a hint of this here, I feel, in the poems tone of light hearted resignation and humour. (Report) Reply
