by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

There's snow on the fields
Language: English 
There's snow on the fields,
  And cold in the cottage,
While I sit in the chimney nook
  Supping hot pottage.

My clothes are soft and warm,
  Fold upon fold,
But I'm so sorry for the poor
  Out in the cold.
