I am Greasy Joan! And it feels right

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Winter

WHEN icicles hang by the wall
And Dick the shepherd blows his nail,
And Tom bears logs into the hall,
And milk comes frozen home in pail;
When blood is nipt, and ways be foul,
Then nightly sings the staring owl
Tu-whoo!
Tu-whit! tu-whoo! A merry note!
While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.

When all around the wind doth blow,
And coughing drowns the parson's saw,
And birds sit brooding in the snow,
And Marian's nose looks red and raw;
When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl—
Then nightly sings the staring owl
Tu-whoo!
Tu-whit! tu-whoo! A merry note!
While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.

    The term 'Greasy Joan' is used in a more recent context as well (probably cribbed from Will, lol). I can't place it at the moment, but... I know I've heard it!

    p.s. And thank'ee kindly for checking out the video, too. As Stevie Wonder put it, isn't she lovely?
