Hello Poetry Lovers

How could I not write about seasons during this turbulent weather?!

Glimpses of sun and warmth filtering through vicious wind and chill.

So I selected the verse that used to be on the back of exercise books. There are two versions but I chose this one because it was longer. Now, we all know this one and it’s followed by a beautiful piece by Christina Rossetti, which is far more visual…..

Thirty days has September,

April, June, and November,

All the rest have thirty-one,

Save February at twenty-eight,

But leap year, coming once in four,

February then has one day more.


My Lady Spring

My Lady Spring is dressed in green, 

She wears a primrose crown, 

And little baby buds and twigs

Are clinging to her gown;

The sun shines if she laughs at all, 

But if she weeps the raindrops fall. 

Christina Rossetti

Wasn’t that a lovely piece? How I wish we could see her read live.

Now, you must tell me your favourite seasons and poems! That’s an order!

Thanks for tuning in, PL’s. We’ll be back with more poetry action and some exciting news real soon….
