„In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago.“

—  Christina Georgina Rossetti, Mid-Winter http://poetry.about.com/library/weekly/blrossettichristmas.htm, st. 1 (1872).

„One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pine-trees crusted with snow“

—  Wallace Stevens American poet 1879 - 1955
Context: p>One must have a mind of winter To regard the frost and the boughs Of the pine-trees crusted with snow;And have been cold a long time To behold the junipers shagged with ice, The spruces rough in the distant glitterOf the January sun; and not to think Of any misery in the sound of the wind, In the sound of a few leaves,Which is the sound of the land Full of the same wind That is blowing in the same bare placeFor the listener, who listens in the snow, And, nothing himself, beholds Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.</p "The Snow Man"
