Βορέας σήμερον όλην τήν Βιέννην χιόνι κατένειψε.
νῦν δέ, ἀκρόθι νυκτός, ἐν σκότῳ,
τόν κῆπον οὐκέτι δύναμαι ὁρᾶν,
εἰκότως η χιών τέτηκε.

I am not sure, if τέτηκε is correct. Liddell Scott says: “II. Pass., with intr. pf. Act. τέτηκα, melt, be dissolved, melt away, of snow, thaw.” Does it mean this is permissible?

Καὶ ἐν τοῖς πρὸς νότον τῆς πόλεως ἡμῶν μέρεσιν, ὅπου θάλπει τὴν γῆν ὁ ἥλιος, καθάπερ ἀλεκτρύαινα τὰ ᾠὰ αὐτῆς, προεξήνθησαν αἱ τοῦ παραδείσου κοκκυμηλέαι αἱ κεκονιαμέναι. τῶν δὲ κλάδων ἐν μετεώρῳ συμπιπτόντων ἀλλήλοις, ὁ ἱπποφορβός κατήγαγεν ἐπὶ φάτνης τοὺς ἵππους.

A different point than what you raised... Were you looking for the feminine participle εἰ(οι)κυῖα? "What seems to be snow has melted".

Perhaps you could try something like, ἔοικε "it seems" (impersonal). With a connective for the full verb, for example δὲ, your last line might be, ἔοικε δὲ ἡ χιὼν τέτηκε, "but it seems that the snow has melted".
Thou wast not born for death, immortal Bird!
No hungry generations tread thee down;
The voice I hear this passing night was heard
In ancient days by emperor and clown:
(Keats, Ode to a nightingale, 1819).

ὁδοιπορούσης διὰ τῶν σπορίμων τῆς γωργίσσης, συντείνασα ἐσόβει καὶ μαστίχην ἔτραγεν.
