Winter, you’re nothing but a villain

Charles, duc d’Orleans (1394-1465)


Poem

Winter, you’re nothing but a villain!
Summer is pleasant and nice,
joined to May and April,
who go hand in hand.
Summer dreams of fields, woods, and flowers,
covered with green
and many other colors,
by nature’s command.
But you, Winter, are too full
of snow, wind, rain, and hail.
You should be banished!
Without exaggerating, I speak plainly–
Winter, you’re nothing but a villain!
