Ne’er a month was so contrary!
One day snow, the next day rain,
And then it’s back to sun again.
This year, nights have been so frosty,
Making heating bills more costly.
And so I guess we won’t complain
To see less snow, and get more rain.
But I’ll be glad when April comes,
Bringing days of much missed sun,
Winds of March, by then all gone,
And hopefully, it won’t be long
Til springtime comes, with green-leafed trees–
Nature’s big apology
For all that January brings:
Cold, warm, frosty, fickle things.
