Sweet bird! thy bower is ever green, Thy sky is ever clear; Thou hast no sorrow in thy song, No Winter in thy year.john logan
Where is the subject that does not branch out into infinity? For every grain of sand is a mystery; so is every daisy in summer, and so is every snowflake in Winter. Both upwards and downwards, and all around us, science and speculation pass into mystery at last.
The coldest Winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.mark twain
Let Winter come! let polar spirits sweepThe darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep!Though boundless snows the withered heath deform,And the dim sun scarce wanders through the storm,Yet shall the smile of social love repay,With mental light, the melancholy day!And, when its short and sullen noon is o'er,The ice-chained waters slumbering on the shore,How bright the fagots in his little hallBlaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall!thomas campbell
This Winter I hope you get a splinter if you make a toboggan and it is a mahog'unjohn hegley
Finnish forests: Let us remind the satellite pictures of the 1970’s Winter in which the old forest appeared black and young forest and cut downs white. Already then the Finnish borders were like drawn on the map: White Finland between black Karelian and black Sweden. Finnish Forest Research Institute hicced up some time and then decided that the pictures are fake. . .pentti linkola
Perhaps the wind Wails so in Winter for the summer's dead, And all sad sounds are nature's funeral cries For what has been and is not.george eliot
Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen. On the farm the weather was the great fact, and men's affairs went on underneath it, as the streams creep under the ice. But in Black Hawk the scene of human life was spread out shrunken and pinched, frozen down to the bare stalk.willa cather
Ah, woe is me! Winter is come and gone, But grief returns with the revolving year.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Forget not bees in Winter, though they sleep, For Winter's big with summer in her womb.
In consequence of the harassing and fatiguing life he had led during the Winter months, he used to retire to bed with a bason of milk or glass of water, and Smith's Harmonics and Optics, Ferguson's Astronomy, etc., and so went to sleep buried under his favourite authors; and his first thoughts on rising were how to obtain instruments for viewing those objects himself of which he had been reading.william herschel
There was never a revolution to equal it, and never a city more glorious than Petrograd, and for all that period of my life I lived another and braved the ice of Winter and the summer flies in Vyborg while across my adopted country of the past, winds of the revolution blew their flame, and all of us suffered hunger while we drank at the wine of equality.norman mailer
New occasions teach new duties; Time makes ancient good uncouth; They must upward still, and onward, who would keep abreast of Truth Lo, before us gleam her camp-fires! we ourselves must Pilgrims be, Launch our Mayflower, and steer boldly through the desperate Winter sea, Nor attempt the Future’s portal with the Past’s blood-rusted key.james russell lowell
At first they set up forked stakes connected by twigs and covered these walls with mud. Others made walls of lumps of dried mud, covering them with reeds and leaves to keep out the rain and the heat. Finding that such roofs could not stand the rain during the storms of Winter, they built them with peaks daubed with mud, the roofs sloping and projecting so as to carry off the rain water.vitruvius
The wagon rests in Winter, the sleigh in summer, the horse never.
A wolf is used to Winter. This is not the first Winter a wolf has lived through.
Creator Venus, genial power of love, The bliss of men below, and gods above! Beneath the sliding sun thou runn'st thy race, Dost fairest shine, and best become thy place; For thee the winds their eastern blasts forbear, Thy mouth reveals the spring, and opens all the year; Thee, goddess, thee, the storms of Winter fly, Earth smiles with flowers renewing, laughs the sky.john dryden
