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
Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.Willa Sibert Cather
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.
Let Winter come! let polar spirits sweep The 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 hall Blaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall!thomas campbell
The coldest Winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.mark twain
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
With rushing winds and gloomy skies, the dark and stubborn Winter dies. Far-off, unseen, Spring faintly cries, bidding her earliest child arise; March!bayard taylor
We're kicking off our fun old fashion family Christmas by heading out into the country in the old front-wheel drive sleigh to embrace the frosty majesty of the Winter landscape and select that most important of Christmas symbols.Clark Griswold
Mr Arbuthnot did not respond, but sat with a thin, weak smile, like Winter sunshine upon a coffin lid.simon hoggart
Thus in the Winter stands the lonely tree,Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one,Yet knows its boughs more silent than before:I cannot say what loves have come and gone,I only know that summer sang in meA little while, that in me sings no more.edna st. vincent millay
If they [the Germans] attack, we will defend. If they do not attack until Winter comes, then we will and will tear them to shreds!georgy zhukov
[W]atching ducks land on a lake in Arkansas in the Winter is about the closest to Heaven as you can find on this earth… and as someone who believes, according to my faith, I will go to Heaven when I die, I am pretty sure that there is duck hunting in Heaven!mike huckabee
[I first climbed Half Dome on] one of those brooding days that come just between Indian summer and Winter, when the clouds are like living creatures.john muir
Forget not bees in Winter, though they sleep.
For most of us, there is only the unattended Moment, the moment in and out of time, The distraction fit, lost in a shaft of sunlight, The wild thyme unseen, or the Winter lightning Or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply That it is not heard at all, but you are the music While the music lasts.
I pray the gods will give me some relief And end this weary job. One long full year I've been lying here, on this rooftop, The palace of the sons of Atreus, Resting on my arms, just like a dog . I've come to know the night sky, every star , The powers we see glittering in the sky, Bringing Winter and summer to us all, As the constellations rise and sink.
