Winter Remembered

"Winds of Delphic Kansas"
by Kate Stephens

"O, the snow-footed, ice-armored winds of the prairie,
Rushing out mightily

 

winter tree


From cosmic caves of the north,
From glacier forces of earth and air,

deer in snow

The winter winds of the prairie!
They drive dark clouds from morn to morn,

 

birds in snow



They shake the light o'er stubbles of corn,
They whistle through woods of leaves all shorn,

 

 

 

bird in snow
With never a hint of the spring to be born,
The flesh-freezing winds of the prairie!"

Winds of Delphic Kansas

Kate Stephens
1853-1938
(Woodstock, N.Y.: The Maverick Press. 1911)
