Cold
 
The air bites shrewdly.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act I. Scene 4. (The Prince to Horatio and Marcellus.)

Is very snow-broth.

Cold as the turkeys coffin’d up in crust.

  Their love can scarce deserve the name;
But mine was like a lava flood,
  That boils in Ætna’s breast of flame.
        Byron.—The Giaour.
  4
She though in full blown flower of glorious beauty, grows cold even in the summer of her age.
        Lee and Dryden’s Œdipus, Act IV. Scene 1. (Ægæon to Œdipus.)
