Song Of The Holly





WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE



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--

Thou dost not bite so nigh

As benefits forgot!

Though thou the waters warp,

Thy sting is not so sharp

As friend remembered not.

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!
