A Chill

by Christina Rossetti
  What can lambkins do
  All the keen night through?
Nestle by their woolly mother
  The careful ewe.
  What can nestlings do
  In the nightly dew?
Sleep beneath their mother's wing
  Till day breaks anew.
  If in a field or tree
  There might only be
Such a warm soft sleeping-place
  Found for me!
