  10. 10. The Winter Heart • Wish but one wish when winter comes, Dream but one dream of the past. The light from a fire is in all our homes But the flames from the hearth won't last. For faint and few are the embers, Snuggle up and keep on your gloves; What the Winter Heart always remembers Is the warmth of a heart that loves.
