Summer into Winter

June stars
January moon
The light dies too quickly
And the dark arrives too soon

April blossom
And august bliss
The frost in the winter
Seals your lips with a kiss

February snow
October trees
When summer dies
So do the leaves

November rain
March flowers
When winter comes
So do dark hours

July sun
September nights
When summer goes to bed
The birds all take flight

December is left
Till the very last
As we look back
At the months just past

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
