The ornately decorated brown background of this card includes images of squirrels, acorns, berries, and leaves in various shades of green. The card is bordered with embossed ivory paper with scalloped edges. The text entitled, "Rough Winter" reads: Rough Winter cannot tear/The oak tree from the ground;/The spreading branches are/With leaves and acorns crowned;/The happy squirrel hides,/And bounds from bough to bough;/Or in the shade abides./Where sunbeams come not through/And thus shall our love be./True hearted, flourishing:/Each in the other see/Rest, Joy, and everything.! The word "copyright" is printed in parentheses to the bottom left of the text and the initials "M.E.G." are printed to the bottom right of the text.
