Snow is diamonds for a faery’s feet;
Blithely and bonnily she trips along,
Her lips a-carol with a merry song,
And in her eyes the meaning…
Life is sweet!
~Poem by Ruby Archer
A 20% chance! Just 20%, that was all we had, and since that is almost next to nothing, we never expected to see snow here today. But snow it did for just a little while. It wasn’t a heavy snow, but it was enough to work its magic in places.
The first fall of snow is not only
an event, it is a magical event.
~ J. B. Priestley
A few feathery flakes are scattered
widely through the air, and hover downward
with uncertain flight, now almost alighting on the earth,
now whirled again aloft into remote regions of the atmosphere.
Snow flurries began to fall and
they swirled around people’s legs
like house cats…It was magical.
~Sarah Addison Allen
The wind crooned softly
dusted the snow
against the window…
Snow…blots and softens the top of
every object like ice on a plum pudding.
Snow was the most beautiful thing
Amitola had ever seen. It fell so gracefully
and drizzled like a cold whisper.
~Edited quote by Aishabella Sheikh
Snow is falling outside and
all is peaceful and still. In such
moments it is possible to believe
that the world can still be good.
~Richard Paul Evans
Snowflakes fall from high.
Flurries lift and twirl below.
The world has turned white.
~Richelle E. Goodrich
Will had loved the snow,
the cleanness of it, the quiet,
the sense of peace it brought…
I love snow…especially snow that happens
when you least expect it and it just sprinkles…
It feels like a secret. ~Edited quote
by Kate Messner
Two things, love and snow, make
the world look fresh again…
~Edited quote by ~Charles Finch
Winter invites white;
white invites silence;
silence invites peace.
You see, there is so
much peace in snow!
by Mehmet Murat ildan
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater… ~Isaiah 55:10 ✝
