Months Ahead

January you are dark and cold

it is dreary no pretty lights to behold

Christmas is over the cheer is done

and now its wintery and not much fun

February the wind is blowing a gust

nights are drawing, out only just

it is very frosty still underfoot too

Forsythia shows a small bud for you

March winds, March hares!

look forward to Spring if you dare

is there a crocus peeping through the snow

that colourful bud, you never know!

April come she will (a chorus)

and with it Spring blooms do fill

our gardens full of song

(Simon and Garfunkel to whom that song does belong!)

May well ok… a bit warmer now to be sure

I can leave open my door

the sun is shining, the lambs are growing

the grass is need, for sure, of mowing!

June, its all in full bloom

Holidays and sunny days

Gentle rain just warm and hazy

oh how this heat just makes me feel lazy

July the days are long though they are falling shorter now

Children on holiday from school, what fun! Wow!

Swimming in the pool or sea

Sunny garden and afternoon tea

August die she must… but not yet

(The duo did some good tunes, you bet!)

The sun is shining the days last for ever

No it cant be September soon back to school no, not never!

September the summer is now a memory gone by

Back to school and alarm clocks my oh my!

Routines and homework once more here we go

Soon be Halloween, Bonfire night, and Christmas in tow!

October, well its in the middle

Between the summer and winter, for a diddle!

Nothing happens but the leaves start to fall

And there is a fox out there starting to call

November November its here November November

And we all remember… dont we?

Bonfire night and fireworks plenty more

whilst all the pets hide behind the cupboard door

December at last is fun loving and exciting

Christmas carols and snow ball fighting (if we get snow of course!)

Presents under the tree and lovely dinner

I think this month is really the winner!

what do you think?

what is your favourate month of the year and why?

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
