Winter Months

Near the end of December winter begins –
Brr!  It is getting quite cold.
The temperature drops (as leaves already have),
And the year is growing quite old.

Through January winter continues –
Brrr!  It is really cold now.
There sometimes is snow, maybe sleet and ice;
We go as the weather will allow.

Winter remains through February –
Brrr!  Days are of the coldest sort.
We seldom will want to be outside,
But at least this month is short.

In March the end of winter arrives –
Ahh!  Now that’s not so bad.
Life is returning to growing things;
The flowers and warmth make me glad!

Winter is good for snowmen, but not for me. I'm always ready for spring and warmer weather to arrive. Do you like winter?

I love winter. Here in Oz, it's meant to be summer but we've been getting chilly wet days a lot and it's brilliant!

Cute poem!

Our weather is yo-yoing. We've had warm spring like weather and freezing weather. The plants are getting confused. :(

I am sooo not a winter person! I agree - the best thing about February is that it's short!

I like winter for a while, but come February I'm tired of it. Last year I stopped shoveling snow when we got to February. My poor hubby did it all by himself all the way until the snow left in April. It was a long winter last year.

I like to *look* at winter - does that count? I used to looooove winter and then my body grew up, so I cant enjoy being in it as much anymore, snow is quite lovely to look at as are the stars on a cold clear night! Thanks so much for leaving a comment on my blog yesterday. I love hearing from fellow writers!
