Winter
 
When great leaves fall then winter is at hand.
        Shakespeare.—King Richard III., Act II. Scene 3. (Third Citizen.)
  1
No vernal blooms their torpid rocks array,
But winter lingering chills the lap of May.
        Goldsmith.—The Traveller, Line 171.
  2
Then winter’s time-bleach’d locks did hoary show,
By hospitality with cloudless brow.
        Burns.—Brig of Ayr.
  3
See, Winter comes to rule the varied year,
Sullen and sad, with all his rising train,
Vapours, and clouds, and storms.
        Thomson.—Winter, Line 1.
  4
        Behold, fond man!
See here thy pictured life; pass some few years,
Thy flowering spring, thy summer’s ardent strength,
Thy sober autumn, fading into age,
And pale concluding winter comes at last,
And shuts the scene.
        Thomson.—Line 1028.
  5
And bids old Winter lay her honours down.
        Dr. Young.—The Last Day, Book II. Line 336.
  6
        Will spring return,
And birds and lambs again be gay,
And blossoms clothe the hawthorn spray?
Yes, prattlers, yes.
        Scott.—Introduction to Marmion.
