December Quotes

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December;
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly, I wished the morrow; – vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow – sorrow for the lost Leonore –
For the rare and radiant maiden who the angels name Lenore –
Nameless here for evermore.
– Edgar Allan Poe, 1809-1849, The Raven

This is what I have heard
at last the wind in December
lashing the old trees with rain
unseen rain racing along the tiles
under the moon
wind rising and falling
wind with many clouds
trees in the night wind
– W. S. Merwin

That’s no December sky!
Surely ’tis June
Holds now her state on high
Queen of the noon.

Only the tree-tops bare
Crowning the hill,
Clear-cut in perfect air,
Warn us that still

Winter, the aged chief,
Mighty in power,
Exiles the tender leaf,
Exiles the flower.
– Robert Fuller Murray (1863-1894), A December Day

Than we were in September,’

In the dark of December.

All gather to remember,
With presents and with parties,
With feasting and with fun,
Customs and traditions
for people old and young.

Thy branches ne’er remember
Their green felicity.

In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

Come, come thou bleak December wind,
And blow the dry leaves from the tree!
Flash, like a Love-thought, thro’me, Death
And take a Life that wearies me.
