Wishing for Snow


Andrew Wyeth: "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."

Aristotle: "To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake, it is necessary to stand outside in the cold." Click to enlarge.  
Lewis Carrol: "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.'"
Mary Oliver: "Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness."

Stewart Stafford: "At the darkest time of year, Lord Yule laid down his beard of snow and cloak of frost and ice to illuminate the gloom."

John Greenleaf Whittier asked: "What miracle of weird transforming is this wild work of frost and light, this glimpse of glory infinite?"

And Sammy Cohn: "Let is snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!"
