Announced by all the trumpets of the sky, Arrives the snow, and, driving o'er the fields, Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air Hides hills and woods, the river, and the heaven, And veils the farmhouse at the garden's end.

(Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Winter is the time of promise because there is so little to do - or because you can now and then permit yourself the luxury of thinking so. (Quote by - Stanley Crawford)

In the bleak midwinter 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 midwinter, Long ago. (Quote by - Christina G. Rossetti)
