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
The frost performs its secret ministry, Unhelped by any wind.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
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
I was born on a storm-swept rock and hate the soft growth of sun-baked lands where there is no frost in men's bones.Liam O'Flaherty
If the campaign is in summer the general must show himself greedy for his share of the sun and the heat, and in winter for the cold and the frost, and in all labours for toil and fatigue. This will help to make him beloved of his followers.Xenophon
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
All these soft kinds [of stone] have the advantage that they can be easily worked as soon as they have been taken from the quarries. Under cover, they play their part well; but in open and exposed situations the frost and rime make them crumble, and they go to pieces. On the seacoast, too, the salt eats away and dissolves them, nor can they stand great heat either.vitruvius
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 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

I leant upon a coppice gate When frost was spectre-gray, And Winter’s dregs made desolate The weakening eye of day The tangled bine-stems scored the sky Like strings of broken lyres, And all mankind that haunted nigh Had sought their household fires.thomas hardy
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
