Beery's hopeful setting in the Dorian mode. The text reminds us that, just as some of the dark moments in our lives seem to linger on, it is also true that during the long, dark wintry days of December we must remember that we are actually getting closer to Spring even if it seems that Winter is dragging on. With optional flute, the rhythmic interplay in the accessible piano accompaniment propels the melody forward as if towards Spring.
