What power art thou,
Who from below,
Hast made me rise,
Unwillingly and slow,
From beds of everlasting snow!

Seest thou not how stiff,
And wond’rous old,
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold.

I can scarcely move,
Or draw my breath,

Let me, let me,
Freeze again to death!

[sł. John Dryden, muz. H. Purcell; aria pochodzi z półopery King Arthur i jest powszechnie znana pod tytułem Cold Song]
