I am not a poet, but I occasionally get ideas that can only be expressed in poems.  I wrote the poem below in response to the poem “January” by John Updike in A Child’s Calendar. I love these poems.  While I like the one  Mr. Updike wrote about “February”, my poem better reflects my feelings about the month.

February

The wind is grayer.

The days are colder.

The month gets longer

As it gets older.

At first we loved

The clean, bright glow.

But now it’s simply

 Snow on snow on snow on snow ….
