"It had snowed softly and thickly all through the hours of darkness and the beautiful whiteness, glittering in the frosty sunshine, looked like a mantle of charity cast over all the mistakes and humiliations of the past." - Anne of Avonlea, Ch. XII.

The sky was clouded over and the astronomer and his assistant sat in the farm kitchen, trying to learn Morse code by writing letters to each other in dots and dashes. Softly, at first, as it it hardly meant it, the snow began to fall.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

The new year always brings us what we want
Simply by bringing us along--to see
A calendar with every day uncrossed,
A field of snow without a single footprint.

Winter is coming - GRRM Game of Thrones

Winter is upon me,
Dry leaves fallen from me,
Summer's run with the swallows,
Left me all my sorrows,
Will I ever see the sun again?

Whisky Before Breakfast, Lyrics to Winter.

They rose tier on tier, speckled with snow, trailing endless pennants of ice crystals high overhead. No-one ski'd in the high Ramtops, at least for more than a few feet and a disappearing scream. No-one ran up them wearing dirndls and singing. They were not nice mountains. They were the kind of mountains where winters went for their summer holidays.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
BY ROBERT FROST

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
