Winter Time

Poet: Robert Louis Stevenson

Late lies the wintry sun a-bed,
A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
A blood-red orange, sets again.

Before the stars have left the skies,
At morning in the dark I rise;
And shivering in my nakedness,
By the cold candle, bathe and dress.

Close by the jolly fire I sit
To warm my frozen bones a bit;
Or with a reindeer-sled, explore
The colder countries round the door.

When to go out, my nurse doth wrap
Me in my comforter and cap;
The cold wind burns my face, and blows
Its frosty pepper up my nose.

Black are my steps on silver sod;
Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;
And tree and house, and hill and lake,
Are frosted like a wedding-cake.

Winter Madness
Julie Hebert, ©2015

I've never been that type of person,
Who welcomes and hopes for Jack Frost.
I mourn when the sunshine starts to fade,
And when the trees leaves are finally lost.

When we get our first snow fall,
I must say the trees look quite nice.
But the roads are a hazard and everything's covered,
And its always like walking on ice.

Maybe if I skied, skated or snowshoed,
Things wouldn't be so bad.
But the fact is there isn't much I like about winter,
And this often makes me feel mad.

If I could I'd avoid the cold,
And sit in my cosy home.
I'd put on a fire and sit with a book,
And hope for winter to roam.

Thankful For Unpleasant Things
Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2015

Snow is unpleasant,
When April does hit,
Enough is enough,
The snow has to quit.

But in the fall when,
That first snow has fallen.
There is no part of me,
That wishes for pollen.

The beauty that surrounds,
By all the fresh snow.
Trees lightly covered,
They offer a glow.

Looking for good,
In a pile of bad.
You'll find the part,
That makes you feel glad.

Winter Quotes

Fall colors are funny. They're so bright and intense and beautiful. It's like nature is trying to fill you up with color, to saturate you so you can stockpile it before winter turns everything muted and dreary.
Siobhan Vivian, Same Difference
Fall Quotes

Now I know why I was born near the beginning of winter - in order to save up enough fat to make it through January and February.
Rory R. Cuphist
February Quotes

Spring forever appears the soothing music part of lyrics unspoken.
It thaws the frozen fears, mends the wounded heart that Winter has broken.
Aarno Davidson
Spring Poems

The shortest day of the year, the winter solstice, is a reminder from the natural world that life itself is short, and that if we want to change certain aspects of our lives, the time is now.
Maya Green, Resolution Evolution for Moms
Thought Provoking Quotes

As warm bread is sliced by a gleaming knife
May sunlight cut through the harsh winter cold

For the unlearned, old age is winter;
For the learned, it is the season of the harvest.

In the winter time we go Walking in the fields of snow; Where there is no grass at all...
