Calendar Quindecims January

~~ by tkbrown

January brings in a brand new year,
gives all a blank slate, fresh start will appear.
So, if last year did not end very well --
in time, there will be a new tale to tell.
Put another log on the nesting fire,
kick back for some time with your heart's desire.
Cold days, colder nights make family
huddle inside, sipping cocoa with glee.
The morning sun seems a lot brighter now,
glistening through the ice on ev'ry tree bough.
Winter's wonderland inspires awe in view --
savor the mem'ry 'afore melted through.
Those who like the cold relish winter's beau,
missing the beauty before it moves fro --
making way for springs flowery brow.

Calendar Quindecims – October 2019

           — by tkbrown


October brings cooler days and colder nights
blanketed with red and yellow,
crimson and orange — color sights
to deck the hills, welcome bellows
whence we fan the flame on cold nights.
Bonfires and hayrides, fun for all,
caramel apples and smores bites
fill tummies midst those dunking calls.
Bobbing for apples, ghoulish frights
are all part of October fare;
fall festivals and frightful dights
round out the Trick or Treat scare.
Then as the month comes to a close
we pull out our warm winter clothes,
wear a scarf to cover our nose.
