Famous quotes containing the word winter:

    The winter evening settles down
    With smell of steaks in passageways.
    Six o’clock.
    The burnt-out ends of smoky days.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    When winter snows upon thy sable hairs,
    And frost of age hath nipped thy beauties near;
    When dark shall seem thy day that never clears,
    And all lies withered that was held so dear,
    Then take this picture which I here present thee,
    Limned with a pencil not all unworthy;
    Samuel Daniel (1562–1619)

    Go, birds of spring: let winter have his fee;
    Let a bleak paleness chalk the door,
    So all within be livelier than before.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)
