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.

    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

    one of my favourite poem reason behind this is that shakespeare wrote this in rhythmic way which touches our feeling. (Report) Reply

    '' As You Like It '' (1623) - Act II, Scene vii

    This song is sung by Lord Amiens just after Jaques has made his famous speech which begins 'all the world's a stage' and goes on to detail the seven ages of man. The whole scene treats of the hypocrisy and ingratitude of man. In fact, hypocrisy and ingratitude are two of the central themes of the play as a whole, with the character Jaques brilliantly embodying the vituperative bitterness of one who has played the courtly game and lost. He rails against everybody and everything, but, in so doing, demonstrates that he is no better than the people against whom he rails. The trick is, of course, not to become embittered, as detailed very elegantly in this little song.
