Colder than the ice caps

Colder than the sea

Colder than the shriven cornstalks

Shivering ‘mong the scree

Cold now is our country

Cold now are our men

Colder are the children

Cold as a dying breed

When women walk the coldness

And their husbands walk away

When children haunt the houses

That shiver and cast away

Then colder than the coldness

Are frozen hearts and ears

Then colder than the darkness

That wails when nobody hears
