    Jack Frost


    by Micha F. Lindemans
    Jack Frost is a figure from folklore, an elfish creature who personifies crisp, cold weather. He is said to leave those beautiful patterns on autumn leaves and windows on frosty mornings. It is thought that he originated in Norse folklore as Jokul ("icicle") or Frosti ("frost"). In Russia, frost is represented as Father Frost, a smith who binds water and earth together with heavy chains. In Germany however, it is an old women who causes it to snow by shaking out her bed of white feathers.

    well , it's a lyrical way of saying that there was frost last night. It refers to a mythical  elf- like creature that goes around putting a pretty pattern of  frost on your window panes at night.
