Two SiSters Mary Thoughts for the Day ~ December Winter

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

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.

Someone painted pictures on My windowpane last night;
Willow trees with trailing boughs 
and flowers,frosty white,
And lovely Crystal Butterflies;
But when the morning Sun
Touched Them with its golden beams
They vanished one by one.
~Helen Bayley Davis, Jack Frost


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

Shivering grey clouds darken
Mountain snow.
~Michael Garofalo, Cuttings


"Lighting one candle
from another -
Winter night"
-   Buson

Antisthenes says that in a certain faraway land the cold is so intense that words freeze as soon as they are uttered, and after some time then thaw and become audible, so that words spoken in winter go unheard until the next summer.  ~Plutarch, Moralia
