Tuesday Tune ~ Welcome, Winter!

O Winter! ruler of the inverted year, . . . I crown thee king of intimate delights, Fireside enjoyments, home-born happiness, And all the comforts that the lowly roof Of undisturb'd Retirement, and the hours Of long uninterrupted evening, know.
William Cowper (1731 - 1800), Task (bk. IV, l. 120)

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.

People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.
Anton Chekhov


Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius. 
Pietro Aretino

The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination. ~Terri Guillemets
