"Announced by all the trumpets of the sky, arrives the snow." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Winter is in my head, but eternal spring is in my heart." Victor Hugo
"On a lone winter evening, When the frost Has wrought a silence." John Keats
"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." Anne Bradstreet
"Every mile is two in winter." George Heubert
"Every winter, When the great sun has turned his face away, The earth goes down into a vale of grief, And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay--Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses."
"In the bleak mid winter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone, Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak mid winter of, Long ago."
