A Chapter by Dave Brown



Not quite merry February’s

Failure is fraught

With missing warm sunlight

That it still hasn’t got

Still displaying

A large weather clot

Through which it still

Hasn’t yet fought

Warm expectations

Have yet come to naught

And with Spring’s blooming way

Still being sought

That time of year still remains

Just an idle thought
