Uncle January

January's cousin Fall left in a fit
For January brought her friend, Wind howling long
Denuded the trees of all their gowns knit
Now her great Aunt Spring feels no way strong

Great Aunt Spring has gone underground safely
Hidden from January's cold icy tricks
Underground or faraway supersafely
Waiting for Spring's return with corner tricks

Spring has a way to drive cold January
Far away up to Canada's great north
Where January cold winter wind that's airy
Really belongs, yeah Spring come forth

Birds and animals with heavy coats sing
With January but rejoice when enters spring

(Had started this one for a contest)

    I will be rejoicing when spring gets here. We've not had much winter and I hope we don't. Take care. Janet

    I really love this piece - the contest filled before you could enter? What a shame - I'm sure it would have been a big winner.

    Nice write Sara! January is sure a brute but if you survive this long month things usually start to get better by the end of February! That's when Aunt Spring starts to work her magical powers! I loved your poem!! Awesome Work!!
