Sunlight - Poem by John Kendrick Bangs

ICE and snow are cold, I know
Pain and sorrow too are chill.
Ever notice how the glow
Of the sun on ice and snow,

On your wintry window-sill,
Melts away the snow and ice
Sends it tripping in a trice?
So with every ill!

So with every chilling storm
All will melt away
If you'll only let the warm
Streams of sunlight play

In and all about your room.
Enemy to sin,
Enemy to care and gloom
Let the sunlight in !
