January

I see no thawing in January’s demeanour

It is as cold and stiff as it can be

It arrives with its three consorts

Fog, snow and sleet

Banishing the sun and stealing its light

Turning everything damp and dreary.

Somehow January has come to know

I am not too fond of it

So it increases my woes and takes revenge

by giving me a wheezing chest

And leaving the tip of my nose and digits all frozen

To save myself from its icy stare

I prefer to remain ensconced

Within the four walls of my home

Waiting for gentler February to arrive.

      1. lol not that cold here in winter, we might wear a jumper in the night but days are still sunny and warm … certainly never snows where I live πŸ™‚

  1. Great use of personification. January can be unforgiving, for sure. Hope the wheezing has cleared (r clears soon) and keep the tips of your digits and nose warm, my friend.
