In the snow

Language: English

Hear how my friend the robin sings ! 
That little hunchback in the snow, 
As it comes down as fast as rain. 
The air is cold, the wind doth blow, 
And still his heart can feel no pain. 
And I, with heart as light as his, 
And to my ankles deep in snow, 
Hold up a fist as cold as Death's, 
And into it I laugh and blow 
I laugh and blow my life's warm breath.
