1.
Winter Morning
All night the wind swept over the house
And through our dream
Swirling the snow up through the pines,
Ruffling the white, ice-capped clapboards,

See how he dives
From the rocks with a zoom!
See how he darts
Through his watery room

Polar Bear
The Polar Bear never makes his bed;
He sleeps on a cake of ice instead.
He has no blanket, no quilt, no sheet

Black-spotted yellow Butterflies
Sailing softly through the skies.
