THE ARCTIC LOVER

by William Cullen Bryant

THE ARCTIC LOVER -

Gone is the longlong winter night;

Lookmy beloved one!

How gloriousthrough his depths of light

Rolls the majestic sun!

The willowswaked from winter's death

Give out a fragrance like thy breath-

The summer is begun! -

Ay'tis the long bright summer day:

Hark to that mighty crash!

The loosened ice-ridge breaks away-

The smitten waters flash;

Seaward the glittering mountain rides

Whiledown its green translucent sides

The foamy torrents dash. -

Seelovemy boat is moored for thee

By ocean's weedy floor-

The petrel does pot skim the sea

More swiftly than my oar.

We'll go whereon the rocky isles

Her eggs the screaming sea-fowl piles

Beside the pebbly shore. -

Orbide thou where the poppy blows

With wind-flowers frail and fair

While Iupon his isle of snow

Seek and defy the bear.

Fierce though he beand huge of frame

This arm his savage strength shall tame

And drag him from his lair. -

When crimson sky and flamy cloud

Bespeak the summer o'er

And the dead valleys wear a shroud

Of snows that melt no more

I'll build of ice thy winter home

With glistening walls and glassy dome

And spread with skins the floor. -

The white fox by thy couch shall play;

Andfrom the frozen skies

The meteors of a mimic day

Shall flash upon thine eyes.

And I- for such thy vow- meanwhile

Shall hear thy voice and see thy smile

Till that long midnight flies. - -

THE END
