Poetry of Kansas


The bitter winds from the frozen north
Are twisting the quaking trees.
Their somber boughs send a wailing forth
Against this chilling breeze.
The little birds from their mates are lost,
Are silent and stand forlorn.
The budding flowers arc black with frost,
Their petals shattered, torn.
