It snowed and snowed, the whole world over, Snow swept the world from end to end. A candle burned on the table; A candle burned.
Boris Pasternak from 'Dr. Zivago'



Each season has its own wonder, it's own special place, and purpose in the pattern of creation. Anonymous



The frost performs its secret ministry, Unhelped by any wind.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge



Some of nature's most exquisite handiwork is on a miniature
scale, as anyone knows who has applied a magnifying glass
to a snowflake.
- Rachel Carson



These Winter nights against my window-pane Nature with busy pencil draws designs Of ferns and blossoms and fine spray of pines, Oak-leaf and acorn and fantastic vines, Which she will make when summer comes again-- Quaint arabesques in argent, flat and cold, Like curious Chinese etchings.
- Thomas Bailey Aldrich



Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow.
-Robert Frost
