He fancied there would be hoarfrost on the trees in the morning.
All the grass and ground vegetation was white with hoarfrost.
He prayed for frost, and hoarfrost settled that night on its branches.
"It is bright as hoarfrost on the slopes and tops there," said Nod, pointing.
And he destroyed their vineyards with hail, and their mulberry trees with hoarfrost.
Their horses were sweaty, and the hoarfrost clung to the sweat.
There was a severe frost, the air was calm, and the sun could not be seen: there was a mist above, and the hoarfrost was settling.
To-day, however, they all lent their stalks to support the hoarfrost, to double and quadruple its total mass.
Then in a moment all the trees were covered with hoarfrost, so that they looked like white coral.
Frost produces a sort of trinity in unity—snow, hoarfrost, ice; and when the thaw comes its ways are many.
