Blow, Thou Winter Wind

(song from As You Like It)


Blow, blow, thou winter wind,
Thou art not so unkind
   As man’s ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
   Although thy breath be rude.

Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
   Then, heigh-ho, the holly!
      This life is most jolly.
   Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
   That dost not bite so nigh
      As benefits forgot:
   Though thou the waters warp,
   Thy sting is not so sharp
      As friend remember’d not.
