Poetry Tuesday: Le Temps A Laissie

By Charles D’Orleans (1349-1465), which you have to admit is a pretty French-sounding name.

The weather’s cast away its cloak
Of wind and rain and chilling haze;
It clads itself in broideries
Of crystal sunlit rays.

There’s not a beast or bird but sings
Or cries out in its own sweet strain:
The weather’s cast away its cloak
Of wind and cold and rain.

The whole wide earth is dressed anew:
River, fountain, and brook now wear
Drops of silver, jewels of gold—
The weather’s cast away its cloak
Of wind and rain and cold.
