CRUCIFIXUS PRO NOBIS: 1. CHRIST IN THE CRADLE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Look, how he shakes for cold
Last Line: Gives in a groan; or mary in a tear.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ - Childhood & Youth


LOOK, how he shakes for cold!
How pale his lips are grown!
Wherein his limbs to fold
Yet mantle has he none.
His pretty feet and hands
(Of late more pure and white
Than is the snow
That pains them so)
Have lost their candour quite.
His lips are blue
(Where roses grew),
He's frozen ev'rywhere:
All th' heat he has
Joseph, alas!
Gives in a groan; or Mary in a tear.
