First Line: My window-pane is starred with frost
Last Line: My heart is crying in the cold.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Winter

My window-pane is starred with frost,
The world is bitter cold to-night,
The moon is cruel and the wind
Is like a two-edged sword to smite.

God pity all the homeless ones,
The beggars pacing to and fro.
God pity all the poor to-night
Who walk the lamp-lit streets of snow.

My room is like a bit of June,
Warm and close-curtained fold on fold,
But somewhere, like a homeless child,
My heart is crying in the cold.
