Winter Time + Alone
- Robert Louis Stevenson + - Edgar Allan Poe
A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
A blood -red orange, sets again.
Before the stars have left the skies,
At morning in the dark I rise;
And shivering in my nakedness,
By the cold candle, bathe and dress.
Close by the jolly fire I sit,
To warm my frozen bones a bit;
Or with a reindeer-sled, explore
The colder countries around the door.
When to go out, my nurse doth wrap
Me in my comforter and cap,
The cold winds burn my face, and blows
Its frosty pepper up my nose.
Black are my steps on sliver sod;
Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;
And tree and house, and hill and lake,
Are frosted like a wedding cake.

Its frosty pepper up my nose.''
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I can not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then - in my childhood, in the dawn
Of most a stormy life -was drawn
From every depth was good and ill
The mystery witch binds me still:
From the torrent or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled,
In the Autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed my by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the clouds that took the form
( When the rest of Heaven blue )
Of a demon in my view.
