First Snow: October 25, 2012
“Did you hear the snow against the window-panes, Kitty? How nice and soft it sounds!
Just as if someone was kissing the window all over outside.
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently?
And then it coves them up snug, you know, with a white quilt;
and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep my darlings, till the summer comes again.’”
-Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
