Questionable forecast

''The very seas are locked in ice and snow, and each commercial vessel wisely keeps its berth, until such time as waters flow'' - Then why this warming Gulf Stream in my deeps? ''The winds will howl at ninety miles or more,

and blot out every sound from human ear, so keep your muffler on, and close the door'' - Then why this soft-crooned lullaby I hear? ''There will be darkness early and complete The storm obscuring all that guides our pace, for stars and moon will not shine in the street'' - Then why this Light, reflected from what Face? ''No seed will grow in such a bitter clime'' - Then why this Rose that blooms in loam of lime?
