9 December Quotes & Poems to Make You Smile & Wonder

9 December Quotes & Poems to Make You Smile & Wonder

Goodbye, November. Hello, December. This month is one of the few that feels both like a beginning and an ending. In all your rushing, celebrating, and preparation, try to slow down inside, right in the middle of it all. Read these December quotes to help you keep smiling through it all.

December may not be your favorite month. But reading some nice December quotes and poetry might help you see the beauty of each season you find yourself in.

What a gift, that you don’t need to be in any other season than the one you find yourself in to start feeling like life has just begun again. That’s the gift of grace, I think.

9 December Quotes & Poems That I Love

1. “From December to March, there are for many of us three gardens —

the garden outdoors, 

the garden of pots and bowls in the house, 

and the garden of the mind’s eye.”

— Katherine S. White, from Onward and Upward in the Garden

 

“There is something magical about the first December snow — the way it dances in the air and ushers in the winter.” — Author Unknown

 

3. “How did it get so late so soon?

It’s night before it’s afternoon.

December is here before it’s June.

My goodness how the time has flewn.

How did it get so late so soon?” — Dr. Seuss

 

“December, being the last month of the year, cannot help but make us think of what is to come.” — Fennel Hudson

 

5. “Cold December night,

Moon and stars pave the sky in

Pale pearl and diamonds” — Author Unknown

 

6. “Earth, mountains, rivers — hidden in this nothingness.

In this nothingness — earth, mountains, rivers revealed.

Spring flowers, winter snows:

There’s no being or non-being, nor denial itself.”

— Saisho (circa 1940)

 

“God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December.” — J.M. Barrie

 

8. “Pine boughs whispering,

Blanket of snow filters in,

Softer than a kiss.” — Unknown

 

9. “I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December.

A magical thing

And sweet to remember.

Than we were in September,’

I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December.”
