Just along about December
And the winter winds are howling
in the country lanes instead.
When the sun no longer sparkles
and the world grows cold and still.
And the trees are bare and lonely,
on the top of yonder hill--
There's a chill that says it's winter
and it won't be long, we know.
Till we're greeted one fine morning
with a world that's white with snow.
All the pines decked out in silver,
what a lovely sight to see.
And a cloud as soft as cotton,
where the sunshine used to be.
