Today I am joining Marcia and AJ at their Snow in July party. Come along--we are going to be playing in the beautiful white snow today--you won't even get cold--I promise!!
Soft as the fall of a beautiful thought,
Or a leaf on the stream,
White as the robe by purity wrought,
Bright as the flow of a dream.
Calm as a sleeping infant's breath,
Cold as the brow just touched by death,
Falleth in many a graceful wreath
Gently, the beautiful snow.
Mary T. Lathrap
See the pretty snowflakes
Falling from the sky;
On the wall and housetops
Soft and thick they lie.
Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories. ~From the movie An Affair to Remember
Of winter's lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer's secret
Deep down within its heart.
~Charles G. Stater
Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things,
but just look what they can do when they stick together.
Vesta M. Kelly
I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape—
the loneliness of it—the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it,
the whole story doesn't show.
At Christmas I no more desire a rose,
Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled shows;
But like of each thing that in season grows.
Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.
Sir Axel (Angel)
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
~Bill Morgan, Jr.
Huey, Onyx, Trec and Dad.
Brew me a cup for a winter's night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I'll toast our bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair.
~Minna Thomas Antrim
Hot coffee and cold winter mornings are two of the best soul mates who ever did find each other. ~Terri Guillemets
