The windflower and the violet, they perished long ago, And the brier-rose and the orchis died amid the summer glow; But on the hills the golden-rod, and the aster in the wood, And the yellow sunflower by the brook, in autumn beauty stood, Till fell the frost from the clear cold heaven, as falls the plague on men, And the brightness of their smile was gone, from upland glade and glen.
You have such a February face, So full of frost, of storm, of cloudiness.william shakespeare
Chaste as the icicle That's curded by the frost from purest snow And hangs on Dian's temple.william shakespeare
Up, and by coach to Sir Ph.Warwickes, the street being full of footballs, it being a great frost.Samuel Pepys
She has made me in love with a cold climate, and frost and snow, with a northern moonlight.Robert Southey
The frost stings sweetly with a burning kissAs intimate as love, as cold as death.roy campbell
After a hard frost a man might wake in the morning and find he was breaking a covenant.william henry maule
The frost performs its secret ministry, Unhelped by any wind.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Or if the secret ministry of frost Shall hang them up in silent icicles, Quietly shining to the quiet moon.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Wealth and want equally harden the human heart, like frost and fire both are alien to human flesh. Famine and gluttony alike drive nature away from the heart of man.theodore parker
I don't know how to tell it but ef such a thing could be As the angels wantin' boardin', and they'd call around on me I'd want to 'commodate 'em all the whole-indurin' flock When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock.james whitcomb riley
The woods are hush'd, their music is no more; The leaf is dead, the yearning past away; New leaf, new life the days of frost are o'er; New life, new love, to suit the newer day: New loves are sweet as those that went before: Free love free field we love but while we may.
O, it sets my heart a clickin' like the tickin' of a clock, when the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock.james whitcomb riley
The frost performs its secret ministry, unhelped by any wind.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Day and night, Seed-time and harvest, heat and hoary frost Shall hold their course, till fire purge all things new.john milton
The frost looked forth one still, clear night,And he said, "Now I shall be out of sight;So through the valley and over the heightIn silence I'll take my way."hannah flagg gould

[Robert] frost says in a piece of homely doggerel that he has hoped wisdom could be not only Attic but Laconic, Boeotian even “at least not systematic”; but how systematically Frostian the worst of his later poems are! His good poems are the best refutation of, the most damning comment on, his bad: his Complete Poems have the air of being able to educate any faithful reader into tearing out a third of the pages, reading a third, and practically wearing out the rest.Randall Jarrell
David frost: If you haven't got nuclear weapons, the choice in that situation would be to subject your forces to an unfair battle. Neil Kinnock: Yes, what you're suggesting is that the alternatives are between the gesture, the threat, or the use of nuclear weapons, and surrender. In these circumstances the choice is posed, and this is a classical choice, between exterminating everything you stand for and the flower of your youth, or using all the resources you have to make any occupation totally untenable.neil kinnock

The woods appear With crimson blotches deeply dashed and crossed, Sign of the fatal pestilence of frost.bayard taylor
