And round a hundred columns high
You danced in palace halls.
"It is with the approach of Wynter that Cats...wear Their richest fur and assume an air of Sumptuous and Delightful opulence."
~ Pierre Loti
“Come when the rains have glazed the snow
And clothed the trees with ice
While the slant sun of February pours
Into the bowers a flood of light.”
~William C. Bryant
