The Months

January brings the snow
Makes our feet and fingers glow

February brings the rain
Thaws the frozen lake again

March brings breezes sharp and shrill
Shake the dancing daffodil

April brings the primrose sweet
Scatters daisies at our feet

May brings flocks of pretty lambs
Skipping by their fleecy dams

June brings tulips, lilies, and roses
Fill the children's hands with posies

Hot July brings cooling showers
Apricots and gillyflowers

August brings the sheaves of corn
Then the harvest home is borne.

Warm September brings the fruit
Sportsmen then begin to shoot

Brown October brings the pheasant;
Then to gather nuts is pleasant.

Dull November brings the blast
Then the leaves go whirling past.

Chill December brings the sleet,
Blazing fire and Christmas treat.
