The frost has come with coat of glass,
And starving robins hop and pass,
And withering grass is froze together,
In the cold and biting weather.
And thrush and blackbird quickly hop,
Looking for something to fill their crop.
And diamonds stare from the hedges bare
In the dull and frosty air.
Sends the snow in hissing flakes,
And sheets the fields and frozen lakes.
And starlings for their food do look,
While calves are in their cosy nook.
