A Quote by Gunvor Hofmo on earth, time, and winter

Now the Earth's face is lathered
white with shaving soap
It's a long time till
the razor once more makes its face
smooth and fresh and green.

A Quote by Kjell Sandvik on light and winter

It's winter
The loud-mouthed wind bellows
Up the fjord
The houses shake but stand
braving themselves
against the storm -
Under the sombre sky
glimmer mellow lights.

A Quote by Einar Skjæraasen on dream, light, mind, spring, and winter

Over lowland, over snow and tundra
span arches, raised by the rising sun.
See: the light is winning!
And the stream is streaming
towards open minds
and towards seeds dreaming
of growth.

A Quote by Michelle Skye on cerridwyn, dream, goddess, magic, movement, rebirth, renewal, solitude, space, time, winter, and yule

Cerridwyn is one of the most magical of Welsh goddesses.  She is the quintessential stereotypical "hag witch" -- hunchbacked, cackling, stirring her cauldron full of magic potion.  Yet this image is but one side of the great goddess Cerridwyn.

Cerridwyn is also a mother, to a dark boy named Morfran and a beautiful girl named Creidwy, and a wife to the giant Tegid Foel.  Her family means a great deal to her, and her magic stems from her need to help them.  She seeks to protect her family, to remove obstacles on their paths.  Like all good parents, she wishes the very best for her children and strives to provide for them.  No young, virginal maid, Cerridwyn has the resources, self-confidence, and inner power and wisdom to forge ahead and aid her family members.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on life, moon, snow, stars, and winter

Up and away for life! be fleet!-
The frost-king ties my fumbling feet,
Sings in my ears, my hands are stones,
Curdles the blood to the marble bones,
Tugs at the heart-strings, numbs the sense,
And hems in life with narrowing fence.
Well, in this broad bed lie and sleep,-
The punctual stars will vigil keep,-
Embalmed by purifying cold;
The winds shall sing their dead-march old,
The snow is no ignoble shroud,
The moon thy mourner, and the cloud.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on self, summer, and winter

I please myself with the graces of the winter scenery, and believe that we are as much touched by it as by the genial influences of summer.

A Quote by John Burroughs on sap run, spring, and winter

Before the bud swells, before the grass springs, before the plough is started, comes the sugar harvest.  It is sequel of the bitter frost; a sap run is the sweet goodbye of winter.

A Quote by Alani on snow, winter, spring, wise, man, bored, life, words, quote, chinese, and boots

a wise man once asked,

"When the snow melts what do you do?"

"Stay inside and wish it were spring..." replied the girl.

After slapping himself on his forehead he sighed and replied,

"You avoid the yellow snow..." he said pointing to her boots now sunken in yellowish substance.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on love, habitation, wings, mourning, winter, absence, loss, emptiness, and hope

I stood on the balcony dark with mourning...
hoping the earth would spread its wings
in my uninhabited love.
