‘What freezings I have felt, what dark days seen, What old December’s bareness everywhere!’
Sonnet 97 by William Shakespeare
What good is there to write about in winter? Yes, it’s most people’s least favourite season yet it has its quiet charms too – if we try to search them out and seek to appreciate their rugged beauty. There really are so many fine things to enjoy at this time of year, if we have the eyes to see them.
