Silver treasures of winter

 

Winter, a lingering season,
is a time to gather golden moments,
embark upon a sentimental journey,
and enjoy every idle hour.

  John Boswell
 
 
 
 
The winter comes: the frozen rut
Is bound with silver bars;
the white drift heaps against the hut;
and night is pierced with stars.

 Coventry Patmore
 
 
 
 
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields,
that it kisses them so gently?
And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt;
and perhaps it says
"Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.
 
Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
