A Winters Tale

"Of winter's lifeless world each tree now seems a perfect part; Yet each one holds summer's secret deep down within its heart."

Charles G. Stater


 "Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed
slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again."

Bill Morgan Jr.



"Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things,
but just look what they can do when they stick together."

Vesta M. Kelly
Winter Morning
 
Winter is the king of showmen
Turning tree stumps into snow men
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes
Smooth and clean and frosty white
The world looks good enough to bite
That's the season to be young
Catching snowflakes on your tongue
Snow is snowy when it's snowing
I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going.

 Ogden Nash


"Winter is the time for comfort, for
good food and warmth, for the touch
of a friendly hand and for a talk beside
the fire:  it is the time for home."

Edith Sitwell
