IN a drear-nighted December  
Too happy happy tree  
Thy branches ne'er remember 
Their green felicity: 
The north cannot undo them 5 
With a sleety whistle through them; 
Nor frozen thawings glue them 
From budding at the prime. 

In a drear-nighted December  
Too happy happy brook 10 
Thy bubblings ne'er remember 
Apollo's summer look; 
But with a sweet forgetting  
They stay their crystal fretting  
Never never petting 15 
About the frozen time. 

Ah! would 'twere so with many 
A gentle girl and boy! 
But were there ever any 
Writhed not at pass¨¨d joy? 20 
To know the change and feel it  
When there is none to heal it  
Nor numb¨¨d sense to steal it  
Was never said in rhyme.
