"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." And when they wake up in the summer, Kitty, they dress themselves all in green, and dance about..." - Alice in Lewis Carroll's Through The Looking Glass, p. 142
(Yes, observant reader, I've used this quote before; but you must admit it's worthy of repeat!)
