January brings the snow,
Makes our feet and fingers glow.
February brings the rain, v
Thaws the frozen lake again.
March brings breezes loud and
Stirs the dancing daffodill.
April brings the primrose sweet,
Scatters daisies at our feet.
May brings flecks of pretty Jambs,
Skipping by their fleecy dams.
June bring tulips, lilies, roses,
Fills the children's hands, with
Hot July brings cooling showers, t
Apricots and gillyflowers. i
August brings the sheaves of corn
Then the harvest home is borne. J
Warm September brings the fruit j
Sportsmen then begin to shoot.
Fresh October brings the pheas
ant, Then to gather nuts is pleasant.
Dull November brings the blast, '.
Then the leaves are whirling fast.
Chill December brings the sleet,!
Blazing fires and Christmas treat.
