Song: I was very cold by George MacDonald

I was very cold
In the summer weather;
The sun shone all his gold,
But I was very cold–
Alas, we were grown old,
Love and I together!
Oh, but I was cold
In the summer weather!

Sudden I grew warmer
Though the brooks were frozen:
“Truly, scorn did harm her!”
I said, and I grew warmer;
“Better men the charmer
Knows at least a dozen!”
I said, and I grew warmer
Though the brooks were frozen.

Spring sits on her nest,
Daisies and white clover;
And my heart at rest
Lies in the spring’s young nest:
My love she loves me best,
And the frost is over!
Spring sits on her nest,
Daisies and white clover!
