February in 28 Words

Just for a little fun I thought I’d try to write a poem in 28 words for February – it wasn’t that easy and the result is not my best work! I wonder if you can do any better. Please feel free to post your efforts or links to them in the comments.

I’ve added a few photographs to brighten up the post, all were¬†taken by Caroline Filer and are her copyright. They are not all strictly February photographs (well it is only the 2nd today!) but they illustrate the poem nicely and were all taken in the last two weeks.

February in 28 words

Snowdrops and daffodils

Battle through frosty earth

Spring flirts briefly with winter

But coal fires still burn in our hearths

Short days slowly lengthen

As February’s light strengthens

 

The daylight stays just a little longer

The daylight stays just a little longer

Snowdrops are the flower of the month

Snowdrops are the flower of the month

February flowers emerging through the woodland floor

February flowers emerging through the woodland floor

Early blossoms brave cold February days

Early blossoms brave cold February days
