"And the stars in the night were the eyes of his wolf, and the wind itself was their song."
“Wolf in the Night” in
A Song of Ice and Fire
"The pale pink light of dawn sparkled on branch and leaf and stone. Every blade of grass was carved from emerald, every drip of water turned to diamond. Flowers and mushrooms alike wore coats of glass. Even the mud puddles had a bright brown sheen. Through the shimmering greenery, the black tents of his brothers were encased in a fine glaze of ice."
George R. R. Martin’s
A Clash of Kings
"See, Winter comes, to rule the varied year,
Sullen and sad, with all his rising train -
Vapours, and clouds, and storms. Be these my theme,
These that exalt the soul to solemn thought
And heavenly musing. Welcome, kindred glooms !"
“Winter” in James Thomson’s
