"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Idioms to describe appearances

Today we looked at several idioms used to describe appearances.

Remember to be careful when using these idioms. No one wants to be called four-eyes, but most men wouldn't object to being told they have a five o'clock shadow.

Context is important.

    Lynne, I am doing it in SOLB and when we talk about interesting idioms, we try to guess about their background. It is the most funny way to express our feelings in English and somehow to impress others. ;)
