Hast made me rise? Unwillingly and slow From beds of everlasting snow! See'st thou/ (see`st you) not how stiff  And wondrous old? Far unfit to bear the bitter cold... I can scarcely move
Or draw my breath I can scarcely move Let me, let me Let me, let me Freeze again... Let me, let me Freeze again to death!"
